This is beautiful, really nice photos. When I can see the sources of our food and then the “final products” in my plate, I always feel really grateful and enjoy the food with joy. :)


After all these years I have yet to find purple sprouting broccoli at ant farmers market or shop in our area. I hope to have the opportunity to try it some day.

There's so much beauty in nature, even in the most mundane seeming things—like broccoli! We need only be tuned in enough to see it or to have someone like you to point it out. Thanks!

Thank you, Yung.

Hi Val. I hope you are soon successful. Maybe you can suggest some farmers you know to consider planting them.

You are welcome, Frank. I feel privileged to be able to harvest vegetables. With my photos, I hope to help bridge the gap between what we see on farmers' market stands and what the farmers see in their fields. There is much overlooked beauty in both places.


I think it's very cool that you're growing this. :-)

Simona Carini

I wish I were, Paz! I am not a good gardener, but I am pretty good at harvesting. The photos were taken at a local farm.
