My lovely hand!

As promised (and the perfect distraction from a super snowy day - 40 to 50 cm of snow coming!).. a series of photos featuring some of our favourite veggies and my hand! I take a LOT of photos over the course of the year and many of them are awkwardly taken as I hold whatever I'm photographing in one hand and shoot the photo with the other! Usually my hands are pretty dirty too!

I'm embarrassed to say that I'll probably need to do a 'part 2' to this post sometime, as I still have plenty of 'hand photos' left!

Enjoy!

  1. There's an instant sense of scale to each picture. That's some bulb of garlic!

    Sungold tomatoes? Potatoes - Edzell Blues? please tell!

  2. Thanks Mal!! Yes to the sungold tomatoes - our family favourite, and the only hybrid tomato we grow.. the potatoes are 'caribe' - white on the inside, jewel purple on the outside.. I love to roast them as baby potatoes or use them in a big pot of nova scotia 'hodge podge'! Yummy! :)

  3. Just a hint about the lemon cucumbers: my grandma always picked them BEFORE they turned yellow. I always pick them before they turn yellow, too. I think they're better that way. Try it.

  4. Thanks for the tip about the cukes.. we generally try to pick them while they're till pale green.. but there always seems to be some yellow ones hiding under the dense canopy of leaves! :)
