The Garden of Daily Living

ollieroseMarch 26, 2008

I got this via email and thought you all might enjoy it.

PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS

peas of mind peas of heart peas of soul

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF SQUASH

squash gossip squash indifference squash grumbling squash selfishness

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF LETTUCE

lettuce be faithful lettuce be kind lettuce be patient lettuce really love one another

NO GARDEN IS COMPLETE WITHOUT TURNIPS

turnip for meetings turnip for service turnip to help one another

WE MUST ALSO INCLUDE THYME

thyme for each other thyme for family thyme for friends

Water freely with happiness and cultivate with love. There will be much fruit in your garden because you reap what you sow.

That is lovely, Diana! I've seen this many times before and always think about it when I'm planting my veggies!
