the farmers and their market are at rest.
doing important work every day
returning here each week to sell their bounty
sleep comes at a price.
‘if the farmer is poor, so is the whole country.’
farmer m shows the kinders what’s inside.
‘who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.’
oakland county farmer’s market, pontiac, michigan
“we have neglected the truth
that a good farmer is a craftsman of the highest order,
a kind of artist.”
ann arbor farmer’s market – september 2018
rows and rows of flowering kale and cabbages
all come together
to create a beautiful, tiny fairy forest.
“a forest is not a wilderness,
but a community of souls who speak to one another on the wind.”

after learning about artist, andy goldsworthy
the kinders create in his style
leaving it all behind
to return to nature in its own time.
“simplicity is nature’s first step, and the last of art.”

from the farmers at the market
we become farmers with our own market.
“when tillage begins, other arts follow.
the farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.”
went for a farmer’s market visit
saw all the stuff they grew
kinders met the farmers
asked them questions
filled their bags
one showed us
the special black dirt
he grows things in
it is like magic.
tomorrow we cook.
the farmer has to be an optimist
or he wouldn’t still be a farmer.
