Quotations About Gardening

Gardening is a favorite activity among individuals of all ages. There's something about growing your own food in your backyard which gives a thrill to many around the world. I love it. Fresh tomatoes, fresh lettuce, fresh peppers, it's truly wonderful. These quotes listed below are a salute to the many food growers across Earth.

Physical work is degrading [only] if the body is used as a slave or a machine-if, in other words, it is misused. But working in one's own garden does not misuse the body, nor does it dull or "brutalize" the mind. The work of gardening is not drudgery, but is the finest sort of challenge to intelligence. Gardening is not a discipline that can be learned once for all, but keeps presenting problems that must be directly dealt with. It is, in addition, an agricultural and ecological education, and that sort of education corrects the cheap-energy mind.
Wendell Berry
Gardening requires lots of water - most of it in the form of perspiration.
Lou Erickson
The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses.
Hanna Rion
Weather means more when you have a garden. There's nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans.
Marcelene Cox
A garden is the most direct way to recapture the issue of health, and to make it a private instead of a governmental responsibility.
Wendell Berry
When one of my plants dies, I die a little inside, too.
Linda Solegato
All gardeners live in beautiful places because they make them so.
Joseph Joubert
