Down on the farm..

So as the hot July sun slowly slides over the fields, the workers park their buggies

and trudge off to the picking grounds, for their daily raspberries and bitter melons

and come back to ask the farmers which are the raspberries again

while the farmer stays prudently in the shade with a selection of sunflowers to decorate the place a bit.

Summertime. Saturday. On the farm.


  1. That's a bit of a worry having workers who don't know the difference between a rspberry and a melon.

  2. I get it all the time in the grocery store - young people who don't know the difference between parsley and cilantro, who will hold up a vegetable and ask "Do you know what this is?" - Jean from Calgary

  3. To be fair, they're both very green.
