  1. Now this is a farmers' market, I love all the variety. I have never seen rainbow swiss chard, or even knew it existed. The multi color carrots look good.

  3. I've never seen multi-colored carrots; so that is a Japanese radish; what goes with a white kohlrabi or what is it; and the leeks look wonderful.

    Love the map.I am not surprised that NY really knows how to do a Farmer's Market! :D

  7. What a great collection of photos and colourful veggies! Rainbow chard is fairly common here in Australia, lots of home gardens have it. I love the range of colours of the carrots too!

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
