“Until man duplicates a blade of grass,
nature can laugh at his so called scientific knowledge”
~ Thomas Edison
The longer I garden and learn about the balance of nature the less I realize I know. As my gardens live organically each additional year I’m amazed at how nature balances itself out without me having to step in. When I try to step in I upset the balance and who knows what the ramifications will be, especially down the road. I’m now even content to let horn worms eat my tomatoes, and the cabbage worms eat my brassicas, I know they make tasty treats for birds, or be a host for beneficial wasps.
How has your view of nature changed throughout your gardening career?
