Time to Daydream

“All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.”
~ Helen Hayes

“The trouble with gardening is that is does not remain an avocation. It becomes an obsession.”
~ Phyllis McGinley
“Your first job is to prepare the soil. The best tool for this is your neighbor’s garden tiller. If your neighbor does not own a garden tiller, suggest that he buy one.”
~ Dave Barry
“When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.”
~ Author Unknown
“Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it.”
~ Author Unknown
“I’m not really a career person. I’m a gardener, basically.”
~ George Harrison
I think that if ever a mortal heard the voice of God it would be in a garden at the cool of the day.
~ F. Frankfort Moore

As the weather's warmed, we've been dealing with heavy rains and flooding here in Cincinnati. Yesterday, the ground was finally solid enough to walk on so I took a stroll around my gardens. All of my garlic is up and about (yay! 100% germination), oregano and thyme are sending out new growth, and - very excited - my blueberry bushes have buds on them (at three years old, this year should produce the first significant harvest). I'm looking forward to blueberry pie in June.
