Without a doubt, though, my favorite creek valley delight this yellow time of year is the pawpaw. We have four large pawpaw patches in our section of the valley, one on the hill behind our log home and three down along the road as it runs by the creek.

    As I flew home, I remembered back to a story I had written years ago. It could not be any more true now than it was then. It goes something like this. Greg stood on the front porch, a dog on either side, as my tires crunched across the gravel and I headed down the road to leave the creek.

    It has only been for the past few months that two middle-aged parrots have come into our lives. One is beautifully green, the other brilliantly red-breasted gray.

    The sky was bright blue, a few wispy clouds washing it clean. It occurred to me to put down my briefcase and simply lie down on my back right then and there, but it also occurred to me that perhaps my mother had been right. Best not to dilly-dally, and best to get right on up to that court hearing and stand properly before the judge.

    Yes, indeed, my garden may well be a jungle of weeds, and the hay is certainly well past good cutting, but this really is a beautiful time of year, thanks in part to the abundant rain and this towering purple beauty.

    When my father was a young man, even before he was a clock maker and met my mother, he worked as a longshoreman. I remember how he would tell us stories of what it was like to work on the docks, about how the older fellows called him Hollywood because he was young and good-looking, and of how in time, working hard beside them, he became one of them.

    With the longer days of summer, it seems that I rarely gather the chicken eggs after dark, and it seems as though recently that has been a good thing. Most of our hens lay in the chicken coop, but I have three independent ladies who lay their eggs in the hay loft of the goat house. So at the end of each day, when I take my egg basket and make my egg-gathering rounds, my first stop is always the goat yard.

    I have felt as though I needed a mechanical alarm clock to set beside the bed. The rooster lets me know when it is sunrise, and the cuckoo clock sings the hour to remind me to get up and join the rooster, but still, I have felt the need for an alarm clock. I told Greg. One evening after dinner, Greg looked up from his internet research and exclaimed that he had found my clock. It was mechanical (good for off-grid living), old, which we admire, and was located in the city, not too far away.

    Soon Greg’s snoring underscored the patter of the raindrops, and I closed my eyes. The chickens chortled and the birds chirped as the creek, gently filled with rain, ran through the valley to the river.

    We have been learning to farm with old farm machinery. What seems new to us is still well over 40 years old. Some of our equipment is red, some is blue and some is green. Those who understand know that each color has its own following, but we seem to follow whatever old machine that we can find for the task at hand.
