Thomas Jefferson

One of the fathers of the U.S of A. was a man after my own heart with his passion for gardening. As well as his curious nature of plants & their well-being. It was constant  science experiment for him, as it is with me. So I am inspired to quote him as I look through my journal.        “No Occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, no culture comparable to that of the garden…But though an old man, I am but a young gardener.  -Thomas Jefferson, Garden Book, 1811

If you have not had the pleasure of visiting Monticello Va., I would advise this! My heart was full and singing to see all that he had accomplished with plants. And you can purchase seeds dating back to colonial times. This is terribly exciting to me as I am an heirloom snob. And I will continue my quest for seeds I love to grow in my garden. Thanks Thomas Jefferson for helping me “spread the word”!
