AND SO IT BEGINS....

In the eye of the cook or gardener
or the farmer who grew it, this food
reveals itself for what it is: no mere
thing but a web of relationships
among a great many living beings,
some of them human, some not,
but each of them dependent on
the other, and all of them ultimately
rooted in soil and nourished by sunlight.

~ Michael Pollan









...another season is here.
40,000 onions in the
ground....
to be continued.

  17. I always dreamed of living on a farm when I was a little girl. I used to cut the grass and pretend I was harvesting and making hay. How wonderful...I hope you have a good harvest...

  18. That's a lot of onions! I was surprised that I was able to grow the dozen or so I got to come up. I can't imagine 40,000. I'm fairly certain I'd lose track after 50!

  20. Very good to be reminded where our food comes from and how much hard work it takes to cultivate and grow food.
