Apple, Plate and Jar….. acrylic painting on board
The winter starts in November. The fields get covered with ice and snow. Most of the fields are turned for next year’s crops. Black loamy dirt replaced the flowers of summer. The apples are already harvested and put in storage. The farmers harvest sugar beets, the last crop that is left in the fields. Sugar beets are the largest beets that I have ever seen, the size of pumpkins. Lories move in every direction hauling beets to the sugar processing plants. The roads are black and muddy from the traffic of the fields. At our house carboys sit in our kitchen, full of apple juice. The juice will continue to ferment until it changes to apple wine.
