  1. Who Makes a Garden
    Poet: Douglas Malloch


    Whoever makes a garden
    Has never worked alone;
    the rain has always found it,
    The sun has always known;

    The wind has blown across it
    And helped to scatter seeds;
    Whoever makes a garden
    Has all the help he needs.

    Whoever makes a garden
    Should surely not complain,
    With someone like the sunshine
    And someone like the rain

    And someone like the breezes
    To aid him in his toil
    And someone like the Father
    Who gave the garden soil.

    Whoever makes a garden
    Has, oh, so many friends;
    The glory of the morning
    The dew when daylight ends.

    For rain and wind and sunshine
    And dew and fertile sod;
    And he who makes a garden
    Works hand and hand with God.



  2. Plant For A Good Life
    Poet: Unknown


    Plant three rows of peas:
    Peace of mind
    Peace of heart
    Peace of soul

    Plant four rows of squash:
    Squash gossip
    Squash indifference
    Squash grumbling
    Squash selfishness

    Plant four rows of lettuce:
    Lettuce be faithful
    Lettuce be kind
    Lettuce be obedient
    Lettuce really love one another

    No garden should be without turnips:
    Turnip for meetings
    Turnip for service
    Turnip to help one another

    Water freely with patience and
    Cultivate with love.
    There is abundance in your garden
    Because you reap what you sow.

    To conclude our garden,
    We must have thyme:
    Thyme for God
    Thyme for study
    Thyme for prayer



  3. He who makes a garden 
 works hand and hand with God.  Douglas Malloch


    Short Verses about Garden Growing

  4. Let first the onion flourish there,
    Rose among the roots, the maiden-fair
    Wine scented and poetic soul
    of the capacious salad bowl.
    Robert Louis Stevenson



  5. Now in the east
    the white bean
    and the great squash
    are tied with the rainbow.
    Listen! the rain's drawing near!
    The voice of the bluebird is heard.
    Navaho Indian Chant



  6. To my favorite honeydew, do you carrot all for me?
    My heart beets for you, with your turnip nose, and radish face.
    You are a peach. If we cantaloupe, lettuce marry.
    Weed make a swell pear.
    Author Unknown



  7. Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian;
    wine and tarragon make it French.
    Sour cream makes it Russian;
    lemon and cinnamon make it Greek.
    Soy sauce makes it Chinese;
    garlic makes it good.
    Alice May Brock



  8. In the right place at the right time,
    tomato worms on tomato vines.
    She is perfectly still, calm and concerned;
    poised by the vines, hunting for worms.
    Mike Garofalo



  9. When gardening, I have one gift
    You won't find in any manuals -
    I know it's strange, but I can change
    Perennials to annuals.
    Dick Emmons



  10. Ye botanists, I cannot talk like you.
    And give to ev'ry plant its name and rank.
    Taught by Linne; yet I perceive in all.
    Or known or unknowvn, in the garden raised.
    Or nurtured in the hedgerow or a field,
    A secret something which delights my eye.
    James Hurdis



  11. All my hurts
    My garden spade can heal, a woodland walk,
    A quest of river grapes, a mocking thrush.
    A wild rose, a rock-loving columbine.
    Salve my worst wounds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson



  12. A garden so well watered before morn
    Is hotly up that not the swart sun’s blaze,
    Down beating with unmitigated rays,
    Nor scorching winds from fiery deserts borne,
    Shall quite prevail to leave it bare and shorn
    Of its green beauty, shall not quite prevail
    That all its morning freshness shall exhale,
    Till evening and the evening dews return, -
    A blessing such as this our hearts might reap,
    The freshness of the garden they might share,
    Through the long day a heavenly freshness keep,
    If, knowing how the day and the day’s glare
    Must beat upon them, we would largely steep
    And water them betimes with dews of prayer.
    Richard C. Trench
