"It seems strange to say, but what can help modern man find the answers to his own mystery and the mystery of him in whose image he is created, is silence, solitude -- in a word, the desert. Modern man needs these things more than the hermits of old." Catherine Doherty

Overdue thanks!

As the summer draws to a close and the garden goes into its final phases there is some overdue thanks to be offered on the blog. 

With all the events of the summer there was one thing that slipped off the radar on The Mary Theotokos  blog. Its also the main reason our garden has been able to provide so much for so many.

That is the work of Bob and Anne Marie Duggan. 

Not only did they put in countless hours weeding, watering, planting and care for the garden in it's earliest stages...

but even more helpful, Bob, through his connection and work with teens at the LEARN SCHOOL in Lyndonville was able to bring some eager young hands to help 
work the garden as well. 

Thanks Bob and Anne Marie for all your work and another big THANKS to the kids from the LEARN SCHOOL and their generous spirit of volunteerism.

Hope you'll all come back for the harvest of all this food, frost is already upon us!!
