Waking up with the sun comes easy with a candlelight bedtime. The birdsong dawn is a joyful greeting into the day. Over oatmeal and ginger tea the hours ahead of us are planned: plant squash, lettuce and pinch basil. Harvest nettles, pot up eggplant. Haul mulch. Put calendula in the radish bed. These are plans to move all day with loving attention, some sweaty effort, pauses in refocus, responding to the push of the earth
and the pull of the plants.
