Beneath all the snow and ice that blankets much of the planet right now, it’s hard to imagine that in a few three short weeks, winter will be officially over and the budding blossoms of springtime will begin to rear their heads. As early as mid-March, farmers will begin to plant the first of their crops, vegetables like broccoli, carrots, kale, and peas. These delectable garden shots by New York City-based food and travel photographer Randy Harris remind us that on the other side of these grim skies and snowflakes await sun-drenched days spent enjoying fresh salads and grilled produce.
Whether he’s capturing a budding eggplant or a nibbled chard leaf, Harris translates the flavors, aromas, and textures of summer into every frame. From familiar tomatoes to exotic zucchini blossoms, vegetables spring from the earth, as if on the verge of bursting with zest and vitality. Planting season begins March 20th.
