Morning is the best of all times in the garden. The sun is not yet hot. Sweet vapors rise from the earth. Night dew clings to the soil and makes plants glisten. Birds call to one another. Bees are already at work.
Over fertilized plants may be beautiful but are otherwise useless, like people whose energies are devoted so completely to their appearance that there is no other development.
The green metal chair is an indispensable piece of equipment. As Farmer Bagley said, "How can you grow anything without a chair? How else are you going to see what's going on.?"
Dreams and dedication are a powerful combination.
