My Gardeners Keeper


“Always weeds. I respect their admirable qualities — grit, tenacity, resolve — even as I lie awake plotting their annihilation.”  – Matthew Hennessy

Every once in a while, I read something that I feel compelled to share with the world.  I come from a family that is obsessed with or connection to the land.  Most of my brothers and sisters seem to need to garden, usually growing much more than we can use and giving away the rest.  My oldest sister recently sent me an article that she came across.  I now share it with you.
