Connections


Yesterday, I spent the better part of an hour photographing images at my local CSA farm. Sauchuk Farm in Plympton, MA has been a weekly part of our summer this year. Every Friday or Saturday starting in May, we stopped at the farm stand to pick up our share of the harvest. Sometimes we received fruits, veggies and flowers grown locally or right on the farm along with items that had been traded with other farms in New England.
About a week ago, I realized that I had not taken pictures of the farm. (DUH!!) The stand would only be opened until November 1st. How could I let the whole summer pass without recording some of the beauty.
Everyone who works there was friendly and helpful. The customers were a pleasure to meet and share cooking tips with. It was one of the highlights of the week to spend a little time buying produce.
And now I have some beautiful pictures to reference and paint.
On the way home I stopped to photograph a cranberry bog. Even though it was drizzly and rainy, the bog looked lovely. I'll just have to go back later when the sun is shining to capture the fall color on the leaves.
