Each morning I am in the vegetable garden at 6 A M, as my dog, when I sleep, kicks my back and licks my face as he is a prompt geter-uper so I do not set the alarm clock.
In the garden I water 144 summer and 144 winter squash and melons and tomatoes. All the time I am watched by several quail resting on the white plastic fence we have round the garden and farm. They talk to me in their sweet coos and I coo back to them. In the spring they love to show me all their little ones and I have even picked up one. They are so friendly and even stay in our trees at night
