“Fresh Picked” means to me picking the veggies myself, right out of the garden. I composed the veggies in my piece where I would envision them in my garden – waiting to be picked in their full glory. I selected veggies where both the roots and leaves are edible, so I wanted to show them both above and below ground. Last fall is the first year I had a successful harvest of beets, so I have a special interest in this vegetable at the moment. There are still a few hanging on for dear life through the winter.
