WEED AND SEED

WEED AND SEED

Two friends and I share a community garden. Gary Lennon does the lion’s share of the work.

Gary wrote this. I am publishing it because it also is a great observation about life and politics.

Gary writes:

I’m into flowers and I’m not going to apologize.

In terms of propagation, there are always lots of volunteer re-starts. The editorial choice comes in the weeding out – I love little purple johnny jump-up in the strawberry bed, and when I’m weeding,

I leave them in the ground.

Ditto on the forget-me-nots – who wants their garden forgotten?

If nasturtiums come back, I’ll transplant them to just where I want them. Every year, they come back.

Purple potatoes shot through with orange nasturtiums define the look of our little hillside Eden.

I left tall stands of Russian blue kale standing to go to seed. These kales have contributed to many a meal.

Next year the upper bed will be full of seedings in the spring, and I will transplant and thin them, as I did with these giants three years ago.

Notice the leek blooms – I saved a quarter row to flower (the blossoms are wonderful) so I could collect their seeds. Little dinosaur kale is from last fall – it wintered over and now will grow huge for fall.


This is me (Scott) again. Here is a link to video series I have done on “Gardening and Government” which shares my thoughts about how government could be improved if our officials thought of themselves more as “gardeners” than rulers who can ignore our organic law.

About Scott . Stafne

Mr. Stafne is very experienced in property rights, including banking wrongs and foreclosure prevention; Constitutional Law (under the United States and Washington State Constitution); Appellate law; land use law; personal injury law. Scott has recently become a media focal point as his win record of foreclosure defense cases against the largest financial institutions, servicers, trustees as well as MERS have blazed the trail toward ending the foreclosure crisis and representing the rights of the homeowner above the profits and secret dealings of corporations.   Scott sees law as a foundation for establishing a system of twenty first century liberties for the people; and for removing that corruption of power within our government which makes the achievement of real purpose beholden to only money.   Scott Stafne has been an attorney since graduating from the University of Iowa in 1974. He worked for a large law firm in Indianapolis (Baker & Daniels) for two years. Thereafter, he moved to Seattle Washington in order to obtain a Masters of Law degree from the University of Washington, which he obtained in 1977. Scott practiced law while going to graduate school and has practiced ever since.   This is a personal blog, and does not constitute legal advice in any form, and is not necessarily reflective of the policies or opinions of Stafne Law Firm.
