“Today’s gardening started at 0600. With a forecast temp of 104 it seemed like the only possible time to get the work done. Six am is not a civil hour in my book – I do my best sleeping early in the morning while it’s cool, slightly breezy and the birds are singing morning lullabys. I fought the urge to slam my phone on the floor as it bellowed at me in the middle of a particularly pleasant morning dream. I was actually snuggled under a light cover savoring the fleeting coolness.

I heard “wake up” noises in the far side of the house. Someone wanted it to be known that I was close to being a slacker. So, there I was shortly after, actually working by 6:20 am today. And, am I ever glad I was. We spent 3+ hours out there harvesting, tidying up, watering the few things that need special attention, finishing the long term compost bin, and cleaning the vegetables that were picked.”
