Sharecropper


A modern-day sharecropper picking turnips. This was made at the organic farm, Sophia's Garden, on the grounds of the Dominican Sisters Retirement Grounds in Amityville. You don't have to be a nun or retired to become a member. Some people participate in the fields, planting, weeding and harvesting, others pay for produce. It's an awesome place. 
The out-of-focus green and tan plants are garlic, soon to be harvested. 
(This is the same Amityville of Amityville Horror fame.)
