Quote of the Day: Ralph Waldo Emerson

September 12th, 2010

Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I’ve definitely learned patience through gardening! I believe gardening is about the process not the final product, which is why I don’t buy a lot of mature plants. I prefer to start things from cuttings and spend years nurturing them into beautiful plants or start things from seed.

Has gardening helped teach you patience?

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
