Quote du jour/John Muir

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.

John Muir 1838-1914

More about the man here.

The canned tomatoes I buy are from Muir Glen, and this quote was on the can.


  1. I have had those canned tomatoes before! Lovely. And what an interesting person John Muir was!

  2. Big fan of John Muir! Are those canned tomatoes any good? M
    Funny thing, they say tinned tomatoes in England. Richard still says tins of soup, tomatoes, etc. And of course, John Muir was from Scotland!

    1. I use them for tomato sauce. I run them through the food mill. They make excellent sauce.

  3. Funny thinking that John Muir would be into canned tomatoes. He was an interesting fellow.

  4. John Muir is a hero of mine! And my oldest daughter and her family were just on a two week vacation which included Yosemite. She recommended going to Hetch Hetchy which is part of Yosemite but has so few visitors that they almost felt alone in the wilderness....I sometimes buy those Muir Glen tomatoes at our nearby Mustard Seed Market.

  5. I love that quote by John Muir! Thank you for including the link to learn more about him. I definitely need to read more about him, and by him!

  6. I buy Muir Glen tomato products too but never thought to read the can.
