Gardens contribute to the well-being of individuals. Your garden helps the entire neighborhood to feel positive and energized. I am doing the final clean-up of the garden now.A few perennials need to be moved to new areas. Vegetable are started by a basement window. I hope to put them out next week. The grass has been cut once and halt fertilizer applied to prevent crabgrass.

The spirit of gardening

Antonia lent herself to immemorial human attitudes which we recognize by instinct as universal and true. I had not been mistaken. She was a battered woman now, not a lovely girl; but she still had that something which fires the imagination, could still stop one’s breath for a moment by a look or gesture that somehow revealed the meaning in common things. She had only to stand in the orchard, to put her hand on a little crab tree and look up at the apples, to make you feel the goodness of planting and tending and harvesting at last. All the strong things of her heart came out in her body, that had been so tireless in serving generous emotions…It was no wonder that her sons stood tall and straight. She was a rich mine of life, like the founders of early races.”
-Willa Cather, My Antonia
