Is there a difference between a Farmer and a Gardener?

By Gloria Whyte

A farmer by definition is a person who cultivates the land. A gardener by definition is a person who cultivates seedlings and their offspring for growth and future transplantation. To cultivate means the preparation process of working the land/soil in order to raise crops/plants. So why do I care about a farmer or a gardener? Sounds as though the farmer and the gardener do the same thing, they both cultivate. But believe me there is a difference and it is a big one, the difference between the farmer and the gardener is what they cultivate, how they cultivate and what happens to what is cultivated.
Let us start with what they cultivate. Are you a crop or a plant? Is the person giving you guidance a farmer or a gardener?

"Don't be afraid to ask yourself, "What am I missing? What do I not know yet?" All generalizations are false - including this one - yet we keep making generalizations. We create images - graven ones that can't be changed. We dismiss or accept people, products, programs and propaganda according to the labels they come under. We know a little about something, and we treat it like we know everything". Learn to be more discerning! It's easy to make decisions based on what you know, but there are always things you don't know. It's easy to choose a direction based on what you see, but what don't you see? We learn only when we're willing to ask, "What am I missing?" That question causes you, and those around you, to stop and think. It's easy to see what's obvious, but asking tough questions brings to the surface things that aren't obvious. Not asking questions is to assume (you get what you assume) that a proje…
