Putting Up

Putting Up

For years I participated in the weekly Harvest¬†Monday link ups (previously hosted by Daphne, but now residing, thankfully,¬†with Dave). I was so proud of every single ear of corn, apple, bush bean and kale leaf. I'd harvest it all, bring it all in, and painstakingly weight it *and document it. An ounce here, a few pounds there. Every single harvest…
For the Love of Blue Corn

For the Love of Blue Corn

I've always had an affinity for corn... A truly profound draw to it. I love the way it spirals up... Encircling itself as it reaches for the sun... Capturing the rain within its long outstretched leaves... Strongly rooted... Profoundly towering... Swaying in the breeze, dancing in the wind.

Shown, Unshown – July into August

Oh, how I've missed you all! And so here I am again, trying to document and share after being absent from this space for much longer than I'd hoped, planned, or anticipated! Realizing it is mid-August (how the heck did that happen), we're way past due for a catch-up and so, instead of baraging you with 15 different posts, I'll…
