Who says produce can't be photogenic?
These pictures were taken today at Frog Pond Farms, near Bainbridge, New York. In New York, we are at the height of summer and of our produce season. So grateful for the plenty that surrounds us each day.
On the drive to Frog Pond, we were hugged by the green hills of upstate New York, and powderpuff clouds filled the sky.
When you combine natural colors, they never seem to clash. Here is the red of onions, the green of cucumbers, and the yellow of squash.
Unhusked corn. We will each eat an ear tonight with our dinner. In our area of upstate New York, bicolor is the favorite. In the late summer, you may find some all white, but never all yellow.
And the brown of maple products. There's even more bounty - local cheese, local eggs, local Amish made pickled products.
For a moment, the memories of winter are put behind us, and we think, how could we not love upstate New York?
Before we know it, it will be October and it will be time to wrap up another growing season. This is what Frog Pond may look like by then.
But that day hasn't come yet. Seize each summer day, hug it, and be grateful for every day we are given.
