"Gardens are not made by sitting in the shade." -- Rudyard Kipling

Few things in life are as basic or as satisfying as tending the earth in a garden. Be it herbs, vegetables, flowers or even rocks, having a garden is a singular pleasure. The benefits are many - exercise, food, pride in one's work, and the simple beauty of standing back at the end of the day to admire the view.

Get your hands dirty once in a while. Before you head out, listen to this collection of songs about dirt, flowers, and gardens.
