In Praise of Gardening

The Geek has drawn my attention to this touching post by Derek Powazek, about his father, himself, and why they like gardening.

I'm not sure that the Geek has noticed that Derek is himself a geek -- who likes gardening. Do you think my Geek might be catching the disease?

Thanks for that link, Chookie. That was a very fine posting indeed by Derek.

Thought provoking. Derek's father carried a heavy burden back to the garden every night. I know plants don't complain but I do say I'm sorry if I accidentally tread on one or pull one out by mistake. Some people think that they do feel the pain when we cut them.
