Got the Worm!

Up a little after five this morning, kilted, booted, and out the front door.  You can guess what I did.  I succumbed to the urge to enlarge the Lorelei just a little bit more. I added, oh, probably another 18-24 inches to the base of the L.  I plan to plant two varieties of bush beans separated by a cucmber trellis oriented north and south to allow full sun on as many plants as possible.  The amount I increased it on Saturday wasn’t quite enough for all that.

Then off to Jones, yes Jones, where this early-bird got serenaded by a harmonious early-bird (the real kind) choir.  I weeded and added leaf mold to the as-yet unplanted part of the bed, making it easier for my wife and me to take a stroll to Jones this evening and quickly plant a few tomato and eggplant plants, smoothly slipping them into the billowy, light soil, the result of my morning handiwork.

Crack of dawn gardening energizes me just like the writing I usually do during that time.  Sorry I can’t write and garden a couple hours each in that same time-frame.  I gotta sleep sometime!

I sling words for a living. Always have, always will. Some have been interesting and fun; most not. These days, I write the fun words early in the morning before the adults are up and make me eat my Cream of Wheat.
