Garden Food Quotes

“I am better off with vegetables at the bottom of my garden than with all the fairies of the Midsummer Night's Dream.”

Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) 'Lord, I Thank Thee'


"A modest garden contains, for those who know how to look and to wait, more instruction than a library."

Henri Frederic Amiel
'The Private Journal of Henri Frederic Amiel'


“I'm not sure ginseng is any better for you or me than a carrot, but just in case the Chinese are right, I grow it in my garden. I stick a root in a jug of gin and call it Old Duke's Gin and Ginseng.”

James Duke, USDA botanist
as quoted in ‘The Wall Street Journal’


“As for the garden of mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes our spirits, as the taste stirs up our appetite for meat,”



“As for rosemary, I let it run all over my garden walls, not only because my bees love it but because it is the herb sacred to remembrance and to friendship, whence a sprig of it hath a dumb language.”

Sir Thomas More
