A Quote by Henry Beston on contentment, earth, garden, needs, and plants

If gardeners will forget a little the phrase, "watering the plants" and think of watering as a matter of "watering the earth" under the plants, keeping up its moisture content and gauging its need, the garden will get on very well.

Henry Beston (1888 - 1968)
