The spell is quickly broken, though. Eighty acres of certified organic peaches, nectarines, and grapes, which we grow for raisins, beckon. On this farm, we don't begin the day lounging under a canopy of peach blossoms, seated at white-linen-covered tables, chatting about high art, high stock markets, and hired help. Instead we're all off and running, Marcy to Fresno State University, where her work provides health benefits and financial stability for the farm. (If it were summer, she'd be packing peaches in our shed before heading off.) Korio leaves for class, though he won't be able to escape the list of farm chores awaiting once he gets home.
