your favorite book is "Second Nature," by Michael Pollan... (yes, that really is
his last name)
Strung out on gardening are you? No twelve
step program needed dear. Just a re-definition......
All of us
community gardeners who compost year round, cloche lettuces, read garden
catalogues in the dead of winter like murder mysteries and girlie magazines,
start veggies at home during blizzards and never get the dirt our from under
our finger nails are just gardeners.
gardeners are folks who create public gardens for their whole neighborhoods,
providing neighbors with vistas of horticultural beauty and not a few
veggies. Addicts are hooked on things which are not good for them, their
neighborhoods or the world; however, community gardeners try to emulate
the bees, who help grow community, their gardens and the world, one garden at
a time while getting filled with the bounty of the sun, air, water and
the sweet loam.
