Gardening requires a lot of water - most of it in the form of perspiration.
Charles Dudley Warner, My Summer in a Garden, 1871
Gardening is a matter of your enthusiasm holding up until your back gets used to it.
In every gardener there is a child who believes in The Seed Fairy.
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
