  • A number of years ago, a man I know had multiple surgeries on his hand, which left him without feeling in it.
    He had had surgery because of pain, so in one respect, not feeling meant he also no longer felt pain, so that’s a good thing, right?
    However, as a craftsman, that also meant he couldn’t use his hand to do his job, which required using both hands and all his fingers.

  • The other day I got the opportunity to pull a fire truck with two friends. It was me, the county judge and the county sheriff.  
    We got up on the rope, grabbed on, and waited for the signal to go.  
    The signal came, we pulled, the driver let off the brake, and….  The truck started to roll the wrong way. So we pulled harder!
    The problem was that we were pulling uphill and the fire truck was just too heavy for the three of us to get moving in the direction we wanted to go.

  • Thirty years ago, if you mentioned soil science, compost, vermiculture or mycorrhizal fungi to the average gardener they would have scratched their head and laughed.  
    Today these are words that gardeners are beginning to understand and take seriously as they learn the value of adding organic matter to their gardens.  
    You can buy organic matter or you can generate it yourself … you likely have all the tools you need already.
