Fall Farm Stand Checkout by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

October 19, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The family farm stand of Fall. It's a rite of passage where impromptu meets time-honored. The modern-day tablets and card readers have become the norm, but the tradition remains. This is the place where the family who owns the farm has placed the items in an orderly fashion with a comfortable sense of haphazard. The items that have been grown by their own hands in their own fields now create rustic agricultural displays. The display is never the same twice because what has been placed here today will be gone on the morrow (and replaced with more of the seasonal bounty). 

We see everyone busy hauling baskets and wheelbarrows in trying to collect the harvested perishables. At the same time, there is a sense of calm and familiar. It's all part of the passage of the season and the bounty the reward for hard work. 

And the planning begins for next year. How will the fields be rotated? What will we do better? How will we have to adjust to time and weather? The rite of passage continues with lessons learned.
