HAPPY EARTH DAY!

 

IMG_4616Earth Day takes place within National Poetry Month.

A fitting coincidence.

The earth and garden speak in verse.

“Because the soil is alive, various, intricate, and because its processes yield more readily to imitation than to analysis, more readily to care than to coercision, agriculture can never be an exact science. There is an inescapable kinship between farming and art, for farming depends as much on character, devotion, imagination, and the sense of structure, as on knowledge. It is a practical art.” -Wendell Berry

Today, we transplanted eggplants and dino kale that we started at Red Hill Farm two months ago. We dug up an old rosemary bush and planted flowers, squash, and potatoes in tires from Bellair Farm! On this day, we’re particularly thankful for our generous agrarian neighbors and the abundant earth.
