Famous quotes containing the word planting:

    For my people lending their strength to the years: to the gone
    years and the now years and the maybe years, washing ironing cooking scrubbing sewing mending hoeing plowing digging planting pruning patching dragging along never gaining never reaping never knowing and never understanding;
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    The mode of clearing and planting is to fell the trees, and burn once what will burn, then cut them up into suitable lengths, roll into heaps, and burn again; then, with a hoe, plant potatoes where you can come at the ground between the stumps and charred logs; for a first crop the ashes suffice for manure, and no hoeing being necessary the first year. In the fall, cut, roll, and burn again, and so on, till the land is cleared; and soon it is ready for grain, and to be laid down.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I want Death to find me planting my cabbages, neither worrying about it nor the unfinished gardening.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
