See these beets
they aren't just any old beets
they are Sinus beets
Yes my dear husband, Sinus is from this moment on to be known as
not to be confused with Sinus Farmer
because I don't think I would like that very much at all
not even sure how you would farm a sinus... harvesting snores perhaps
or fields of tissues....
anyway so here they are
in all their glory direct from the back yard vegie patch
lovingly tended by the man himself
who checks on his babies every day after work
I would have drawn the snow peas
but they get eaten as fast as they grow on the vine
farmer's prerogative apparently
and I can't show you the carrots
because they are beyond mutants
they would give you nightmares
they still taste good, but boy do they look freaky
and there is something rather offputting about eating something
that looks scarily like the a giant's arthritic toes... with bad hang nails
the beets however are a delight not just to draw and paint, but also to eat
I am planning a beet and feta tart over the weekend now they are duly drawn
So beets it is for the APR challenge In Your Backyard
and a big thanks to Farmer Sinus for growing such wonderful specimens...
maybe the next crop of carrots will also be pretty enough to draw
if we are game to try them again that is....
Can I also take a moment to thank Rita Barton
for this wonderful award... very much appreciated...xx
