Famous quotes containing the words dusting and/or crop:

    Heredity
    Proposes love, love exacts language, and we lack
    Language. When shall we speak again? When shall
    The sparrow dusting the gutter sing? When shall
    This drift with silence meet the sun? When shall I wake?
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The mode of clearing and planting is to fell the trees, and burn once what will burn, then cut them up into suitable lengths, roll into heaps, and burn again; then, with a hoe, plant potatoes where you can come at the ground between the stumps and charred logs; for a first crop the ashes suffice for manure, and no hoeing being necessary the first year. In the fall, cut, roll, and burn again, and so on, till the land is cleared; and soon it is ready for grain, and to be laid down.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
