A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning to grow in rows.

Doug Larson

Gardening is not a rational act.

Margaret Atwood

I agree with Margaret Atwood - replanted vegies yesterday and am on my way to get plants for the 3rd time after last night's storms.

A thought on the first quote---I decided weeds don't grow in rows on purpose and can therefore survive those who wish to pull every last one of them up!

Thanks, Anne!
Good luck with replanting.

I like the first quote, but nothing in my garden grows in rows, not even the veggies :)

Atwood is right, there is nothing rational about gardening, but then enjoyment is an irrational act anyway
