'Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.'

Quote by May Sarton
Our indoor tomato and basil plants are growing healthy so far. The tomato plants are now 44 days old. It is a challenge to grow them indoors and it requires patience! Butterflies play a major role in gardening. During every walk to the park we see butterflies and moths, but we don't see too many around our neighbors' gardens. If you have an outdoor garden, you can raise your own butterflies for your backyard and help in maintaining the ecosystem. Here is an excellent link on attracting helpful animals to your garden.
