Farmers can keep it pretty simple and straight....

This old Farmer's Advice was forwarded to me by a nursery friend. I thought some were pearls of wisdom every gardener should consider, especially as we think about New Years resolutions.
  • Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

  • Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

  • A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

  • Words that soak into your ears are whispered....not yelled.

  • Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

  • You cannot unsay a cruel word.

  • Every path has a few puddles.

  • When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

  • Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

  • Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

  • Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

  • Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

  • If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

  • The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

  • Always drink upstream for the herd.

  • Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

  • Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

  • If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.
