Stacy Tornio, Editor, Birds & Blooms When I was a kid, I used to moan and groan about waking up at 5 a.m. to harvest corn. They claimed it was something about working in the cool part of the day, but I thought it was pure torture. Now, I’m thankful for my gardening roots and enjoy growing tomatoes, pepper, melons, cucumbers and a whole lot more with my own kids. We also feed the birds, plant containers and anything else that involves getting our hands dirty in the backyard.
