Until man duplicates a blade of grass

“Until man duplicates a blade of grass,

nature can laugh at his so called scientific knowledge”


~ Thomas Edison


The longer I garden and learn about the balance of nature the less I realize I know. As my gardens live organically each additional year I’m amazed at how nature balances itself out without me having to step in. When I try to step in I upset the balance and who knows what the ramifications will be, especially down the road. I’m now even content to let horn worms eat my tomatoes, I know they make tasty treats for birds, or be a host for beneficial wasps.
