    Nice article. It made me pause and reflect a bit. I am very thankful for my garden, and all the peace and enjoyment it gives me. Happy Thanksgiving!


  2. Great article and reflection Rev. And an apt piece coming out this close to Thanksgiving.

    (the “sprayed myself” story, BTW, if expanded would make a good humor piece for a national magazine like Horticulture.
