I planted it, watered it, harvested it, cooked it, styled it, photographed it, and ate it.
I started gardening in 2009 not too long after I started my photography business because I was stressed out and needed a hobby.
Over the years as my career got busier and busier, I found myself harvesting an abundance of beautiful produce but lacking the time to cook and eat everything.
In 2020 when the world came to a screeching halt and I became an unemployed photographer and full time Zoom school teacher to my son, I finally found some time to cook all the beautiful food I grew in my garden. What I thought was a pause on my photography career turned out to be a time of creating something deeply fulfilling while being slow and intentional.
These are some of the things I grew and created during my 2 years of lockdown and unemployment, all shot with an iPhone.
