The Joy of San Diego Vegetable Gardening

Garden Quotes

My favorite:
“Kiss of the sun for pardon. Song of the birds for mirth. You’re closer to God’s heart in a garden than any place else on earth.” – Dorothy Frances Gurney

“This planet we inhabit is the Great Spirit’s garden” – Native American:  “Manidoo ogitigaan o ow minis ebiitamang.”

“We are beginning to realize that deserts may not be natural. They are usually the result of human activity. By the same token, Nature is not always a Garden of Eden. Some partnership is required to bring out the best in nature and people. ‘Give to Nature and she will repay in glorious abundance.’ was one of Alan Chadwick’s favorite sayings. Gardening and mini-farming give us the opportunity to participate in the subtle transformation of the desert to “dessert”. All we need to do is start with one growing bed and tend it well, and we’ve begun this exciting, expanding, giving process of enlivening and healing the Earth and ourselves.” – Preface to How To Grow More Vegetables,  by John Jeavons
