"If well managed, nothing is more beautiful than the kitchen garden."  William Cobbett, The English Gardener 1829


"God Almighty first planted a garden, and indeed it is the purest of human pleasures. It is the greatest refreshment to the spirits of man."  Francis Bacon,  'Of Gardens', essays 1627 

I found a lovely gardening book at the library...they reclaimed an old forgotten, walled garden like the one in the book "The Secret Garden".    Charming read!  Old fashioned row planting...but charming anyway. 
(It's called "The Family Kitchen Garden" by Liebreich, Wagner and Wendland)

Post  OhioGardener 6/11/2019, 1:58 pm

Do something with your hands...like gardening. These activities turn on a good mood and turn off stress. Working with your hands stimulates the right side of the brain, which controls your creative, intuitive, more easygoing side, and turns off the controlling, logical left side of the brain. The more the right side of the brain is encouraged, the better you feel.

                                 From "Chill Out: 100 Creative Ways to Relax", by Richard Craze

Post  OhioGardener 7/4/2019, 10:26 am

“Working with living creatures, both plant and animal, is what makes agriculture different from any other production enterprise. Even though a product is produced, in farming the process is anything but industrial. It is biological. We are dealing with a vital, living system rather than an inert manufacturing process. The skills required to manage a biological system are similar to those of the conductor of an orchestra. 
 
The musicians are all very good at what they do individually. The role of the conductor is not to play each instrument, but rather to nurture the union of the disparate parts. The conductor coordinates each musician's effort with those of all the others and combines them in a harmonious whole. Agriculture cannot be an industrial process any more than music can be.” 
                                              ~ Elliot Coleman, The New Organic Grower

My rule of green thumb for mulch is to double my initial estimate of bags needed, and add three. Then I'll only be two bags short.
