November Trees with Leeks and Parsnips

I was so lucky to enjoy yesterday's glorious weather at Full Circle Farm. A couple of paintings were made, many little airborne spiders were lifted gently off my sweater and my boots were dignified with farm mud.

This  painting is 5"x7" and is oil on canvas. The parsnips are the bright green leaves on either side of the leek bed.

Full Circle posted this wonderful link on their web site about the root systems of vegetables. It blows my mind! A carrot root system running 7.5 feet down. Really makes you wonder what your veggies have been eating down there.
