Top 10 Reasons to grow a garden:

10. You love zucchini, even though you’ve never bought it from the supermarket.

9. You feel all country-ish with seed catalogs spread out all over the coffee table.

8. Working 10 hours for a free tomato seems like a bargain.

7. You feel charitable showing up to work every day during the month of August with a bagload of free squash.

6. You’ve always wanted to crawl around at 6am with a flashlight, hunting for tomato worms.

5. You have an excuse to wear a John Deere cap.

4. Clean fingernails are overrated.

3. There’s nothing else to do in August, so you may as well weed, pick, and can. Every day.

2. The $500 you spent on seeds, fertilizer, and compost, to grow $200 worth of vegetables is a good investment by government standards.

And the #1 reason to grow a garden…

1. Those survival guys on TV have nothing on a family who can live off nothing but zucchini and pattypan squash for two months.

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.
