Why do you garden?
July 23, 2020
When I was taking a break the other day, my mind began to wander and I started thinking about gardening. Not unusual since that's what I was taking a break from. But I asked myself why I enjoyed working in the garden so much. Why did I put myself through the toil and effort that it takes? We all know how much effort it takes to have a nice garden. It doesn't matter if it's a vegetable garden, a flowerbed, a nice lawn, trees, or shrubs. All of it takes a great deal of work to look good or produce. The philosophical side of me asked, "Why?"
Sometimes I look back and think I always had an urge...
