My favorite time of day here in Greensboro is around 8:30 when our little area starts stirring, getting things in order for the day. We open wide the doors of Pie Lab, get the fans cranking, start grinding some coffee, boiling some water, turning some tunes on. It's so peaceful to sit on the back steps and watch everyone start showing up for work in the garden, at HERO, at area shops. Get a little mug of coffee, read a few pages in a book until our first customer, usually Charles, shows up. It's a time of day bursting with potential. Everyone shows up fresh, establishing the day's agenda. You don't know what things the day will hold or who will show up (and these days, what good produce they're bringing us).
