Worth Repeating

"Agriculure is the most healthful, most useful, and most noble employment of man."
George Washington

"No race can prosper till it learns that there is as much dignity in tilling a field as in writing a poem."
Booker T. Washington

"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization."
Daniel Webster

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so called scientific knowledge.

Words of wisdom from Thomas Edison!

We really enjoy your blog. Thanks for taking the time to write.

I like the quote by Booker. I have really been pondering what would happen to Africa if Christian Agrarianism were to take hold. A pastor friend of our was in Uganda for 6 months staying with his daughter and son-in-law. Being the old farmer that he was he planted a garden there. The vegetables grew like crazy. But he got the funniest look from the locals. To see a White Man digging in the dirt. That was womens work.

When we were in Alaska we noticed the same attitude in the Indians.
