Signs of spring and some thoughtful words from E.E. Cummings

March 16th, 2011 by hkeeler in garden updates · 1 Comment

O sweet spontaneous

earth how often have

the

doting

fingers of

prurient philosophers pinched

and

poked

thee

has the naughty thumb

of science prodded

thy

beauty     .how

often have religions taken

thee upon their scraggy knees

squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive

gods

(but

true

to the incomparable

couch of death thy

rhythmic

lover

thou answerest

them only with

spring)

Usually you know that you’ve arrived when you make the New York Times but some local friends arrived some time ago. Kasey White and Jeff Broadie of Lonesome Whistle Farm have been featured in today’s Times for their work in growing heirloom beans and grain.

They are involved with the Southern Willamette Bean and Grain Project and are part of a great local effort to return wonderful food to valley.   (http://www.mudcitypress.com/beanandgrain.html).

Great to see the exposure!
