At this point, Julia has selected a tupper-ware to pick blackberries at the end of the road. So, I load the two little guys on the 4-wheeler while we are all still in our pajamas and head out. We drive vroom-vroom to the end of the road where we generally see three to five wild rabbits munching grass. Then we drive around the corner to where the wild blackberries are ripe and ready; we pick enough to put on that morning's cereal and yogurt.
On the way home, we normally pass my neighbor walking her dog. It's always a bit embarrassing as we hardly ever see her later in the day when we actually look fit to be out of the house.
Once we make it home, we walk out and water the garden. The last few days, there has been the first few cucumbers and tomatoes to pick as well.
I'm the most excited about the cantaloupe. I only planted seven plants, but it looks like we are going to have lots and lots of yummy cantaloupes.
By the time we are done in the garden, the rest of the kids are generally getting up and we can start our day.
