Produce Harvest Abounds

Produce harvest at Golden Grain Farms abounds.  My motto this year is harvest more produce in less space since I'm older and don't like to weed.  Despite the 100 + heat, produce continues to grow.  As soon as I finished the supper dishes last night I headed outside.  It was so hot it took my breath away.  Regardless, I headed to the East garden to turn on the sprinkler.  Than with straw hat in hand, work gloves on, and picking buckets hanging over my old tan arm, I headed toward the tractor.  Once there, I placed the empty buckets in the front-end loader.  I fumbled for the tractor keys in my pocket as I slowly climbed on the tractor and started it up (picture an old woman with a straw hat on, tank top, shorts, socks & sneakers on the tractor-yipes).  I steered the tractor toward the west garden and my old black dog followed behind.  We turned on another sprinkler and than the pickin begun.  Cucumbers first-one 5 gallon bucket-cantaloupe-6. yellow & red cherry tomatoes-2 gallons, tomatoes 1 gallon.  When finished I reloaded the 5 gallon buckets into the front end loader.  The load went to the bakery to wash and store in the large refrigerator for tomorrows work day.  As I'm locking up the bakery I notice it has gotten dark.  The old black dog escorts me to the tractor with a full moon in the sky guiding our way.  The night is still & cooler and work is done for another day.  As I sit on the tractor and drive to the barn I'm as peaceful and contend as I can be.  The old black dog is following me behind the tractor.  How many people get to do what they love to do.  How many people even know what they want to do.  I'm thankful.
