My friend Kristi Gold reminds me of this Dave Barry quote: “Crabgrass can grow on bowling balls in airless rooms, and there is no known way to kill it that does not involve nuclear weapons.” Another reason I don’t garden. My world is covered with crabgrass.
On the other hand, I know there are people who find great joy in digging and growing. I have a heroine in the third book of the Tales from Butternut Creek series who finds healing through gardening but I don’t understand why she would. I’d love to hear from you about why you love gardening and your opinion on how digging and planting could heal that heroine. Thank you.
