Greg Elderkin started it last week with his lesson on caterpillars and soils. I am continuing his thoughts this morning thinking about The Wonderful World of Weeds. I found the following that fit in well with the lesson. They are words of wisdom…
10: We really do reap what we sow. Good seeds bear good fruit.
9: Without rains and storms there is no growth – no fruit is produced.
8: When weeding, be careful! We can’t always tell the difference between a nasty weed and a beautiful flower.
7: Deep roots are a good thing. Without them, we’ll wither and die.
6: Pruning and trimming, as painful as it seems, actually works to our advantage.
5: In gardening, as in life, cheating does not work. Short-cuts, slipshod efforts, and neglect always show up in the quality of our garden.
4: Like anything worthwhile, beautiful gardens require attention, hard work, and commitment.
3: We cannot rush the harvest. Bearing fruit takes time and patience. Premature fruit is almost always sour.
2: Gardening and growing is a lifetime experience. We can experience growth and beauty until the day we die.
1: Fertilizer helps! In fact, nothing much grows without it.
