2019

I followed the farmer taking care of her plants during the whole growing period from April to October in 2019. I wanted to document the power of the plants, their struggle in changing weather conditions, the careful nurturing and the wisdom in the hands of the farmer. And then, as a bonus, I got to see the helping bees and bumblebees at work. It takes a lot of time, luck and knowledge to grow your own vegetables. Most of us would not be very successful in it if we’d have to try.
