“A garden is half-made when it is well planned. The best gardener is one who does the most gardening by the winter fire.”
Liberty Hyde Bailey (An inspiring American horticulturist 1858 – 1954)
Due to the sudden drop in temperature – although probably not cold by most folks standards – we don’t even get a frost here, I have decided computer gardening isn’t such a bad thing right now. After last week the garden is in a good place, but I need to avoid the boom and bust situation that swings wildly between in control and jungle wild.
I went in search of a message for today and stumbled across Liberty Hyde Bailey – an inspirational horticulturalist and botanist who achieved many great things in his life time and left us with many words of wisdom, for the garden and for life. I need to find out more about him.
But for now his words express my sentiment. Winter is a time for garden planning. I have no fireplace (yet) so you will find me planning my garden under the hum of the heat pump!
