It has finally rained for a few days in parched Northern California. Not nearly enough to make us breath a sign of relief, but enough to make us believe rainstorms are still possible.
It was not raining when I went to Redwood Roots Farm to pick vegetables, but the signs of recent rain were clear. Raindrop like pearls were strewn with abundance on the leaves of Brussels sprouts plants.
And opened sprouts had collected water in their center.
If you are not familiar with Brussels sprout harvesting, the roundish "scars" you see on the stem are the places where sprouts used to be attached. The area immediately below each scar is where a leaf used to be attached.
This is my contribution to edition #117 of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook, now organized by Cinzia of Cindystar, and hosted this week by Giuliana of Satsuki en cuisine.
The photos were shot in color and then converted to black and white (Lightroom preset B&W Look 2).
