Eco-Machismo Mulching

         A lot of men are reluctant to try organic gardening – thinking that it’s too touchy-feely, earthy-crunchy.  Real men just want to “grow ‘um and mow ‘um.”
         In Chinese Taoist philosophy, the concept of "yin and yang” is used to describe how seemingly diametrical opposites can be thought of as complementary forces that interact to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the parts.
         Likewise, the nurturing and destructive aspects of horticulture can be successfully synergized.

Flakes of lifeless leaves
flung from slashing Toro blades –
return to their roots.
