Golden Circle COUNTERclockwise?

I am planning a one day self drive Golden Circle tour (Sept. 10) and read a suggestion to go Counterclockwise, to avoid tour buses.
Has anyone done this? , and agree?
Also, I would like to lunch at Fridheimer Tomato Farm, but unsure what time to book if travelling Counterclockwise (from Reykjavik).
Any expected stops between Reykavik and Fridheimer that helps me understand when I should book lunch?
Would leaving Fridheimer at 2:00 pm leave enough time to see the main sights on the remainder of the Golden Circle?
I don't want to shortchange Thingviller at the end of the counterclockwise day!

Thanks for any advice!

This may not be helpful but we went mid April and did Golden Circle and had no issues with tour buses or crowd. Parking lots are full but there’s plenty of parking.

Not much response here. I suggest you post on the TripAdvisor Iceland forum. They get a lot more activity.
