Margaret Roach has been harvesting thirty years of backyard parables-deceptively simple, instructive stories from a life spent digging ever deeper-and has distilled them in this memoir along with her best tips for garden making, discouraging all manner of animal and insect opponents, at-home pickling, and more. After ruminating on the bigger picture in her memoir And I Shall Have Some Peace There, Margaret Roach has returned to the garden, insisting as ever that we must garden with both our head and heart, or as she expresses it, with "horticultural how-to and woo-woo." In THE BACKYARD PARABLES, Roach uses her fundamental understanding of the natural world, philosophy, and life to explore the ways that gardening saved and instructed her, and meditates on the science and spirituality of nature, reminding her readers and herself to keep on digging.

    I just have to say how absolutely right you are, BUT i keep studying for two reasons._ my parents ask me to because they feel unconfortable with the idea of doing otherwise_ pride (although i know is the stupidest thing i could put as excuse)

    OMG I am so happy I found this post. I've built a great site with Go Daddy's web builder, it looks AMAZING!! BUTЙ I need my customers to be able to chose product sizes and the quick PayPal cart doesn't give you a drop down menu for sizes. So Go Daddy told me to purchase they're Quick Shopping Cart Р UGH and now it's like a whole new world, My site is complete all I need is a drop-down menu for my customers to to pick a size. Why is this so hard. UGH i am so frustrated, it just seems so easy, yet so hard.
