"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

How Does Your Garden Grow?UPDATED

Not much to read here folks. This is more of a record for the farm.  I still have a good deal of plants in sunroom awaiting planting and of course I will be sowing a good deal of seeds directly into the soil.  I have been planting for the past few days and made every plant dated for today  to keep it easy.
