This summer, the teenager, whose passion is creating healthy yet yummy meals and desserts, is spending the summer working on a farm. This past weekend we visited her there, and I took (stylized) photos of some of the beautiful flowers and vegetables currently in season. (To see more, full-color photos of our favorite farm, click here.)
Farming is incredibly hard, labor-intensive, not-high-paying work, but it is immensely rewarding (when everything goes right) -- and I feel fortunate to get to enjoy the benefits of these incredible farmers' labors.
I hope you enjoy these photos and will support your local farmers.
*Sadly, it is not quite tomato season out on Long Island. Otherwise there would be half a dozen shots of tomatoes.
