One of my dear gardening buddies forwarded this to me over email and I just had to share with you!
The Garden of Daily Living
Plant three rows of peas:
Peace of mind. Peace of heart. Peace of soul.
Plant four rows of squash:
Squash gossip. Squash indifference. Squash grumbling. Squash selfishness.
Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful. Lettuce be kind. Lettuce by patient. Lettuce really love one another.
No garden is without turnips:
Turnip for meetings. Turnip for service. Turnip to help one another.
Most of all, the garden should have thyme:
Thyme for each other. Thyme for family. Thyme for friends.
Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. Fruit abounds in your garden because we reap what we sow.
