I love this. Squash vines are like trying to tame a gorilla! Gardening teaches so much about life.

The same is true with healthy heirloom tomato plants.

That is so true Dave. Gardening teaches humility and patience, and a world leader should be most of all humble, to better serve the people. Smiling

Well said Josephine.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Yes! Gardens are touch...weeds are FAR more difficult to 'persuade' than people are. Managing weeds is like trying to defy gravity.

Green Grin! Since we all know that gardening takes thought and effort, it teaches patience and responsibility, it brings calm, accomplishment and so much more; wouldn't it be wonderful if a requirement for politicians was: "MUST have experience in gardening!"

Yes humility and the ability to overcome and not quit when things don't quite work out how you planned.
