The truth is that it's difficult for me to have them digging in my yard, even when I know that the result will be a lovely herb bed, with Arts & Crafts masonry, that will spread blessings and health all over my small yard. But every shovelful of dirt tugs at me and I can feel the ditch dug for the foundation of the raised bed in my own depths. I think that this is part of what the Earth demands. You can dig me, but you must dig and be dug in return.

/Bonus points for the reference.

The reference is Langston Hughes.
I play it cool and I take no jive
and thats the reason I stay alive
my motto as I live and learn
is dig and be dug in return
