In the world of gardening, no one comes close to saying it how it is than Miss Bettye Hicks. This page is dedicated to her consistent insights into the world of organic gardening.
"Wisdom is knowing that a tomato is a fruit...Knowledge is not putting it in your fruit salad."
"Gardening requires lots of water...most of it is in the form of perspiration."
"How do you keep gophers from digging in your garden? ... Take away their shovels"
"April showers bring may flowers. What do May flowers bring? ... Pilgrims"
"If only I could grow green stuff in my garden like I can in my refrigerator."
"Do you carrot at all for me. My heart beets for you. With your turnip nose and your radish face...you are a peach!"
