Gardening is good for you
. Of course, this article says nothing about the effects of gardening failure – when the rain or sun or soil or insects conspire against you; when you grow spinach leaves the size of clover, or beets the size of peas. When your livelihood depends upon it, it can be devastating
. Even when it doesn’t, it can be hard to take. Gardening teaches fortitude
, whether you want it or not.
