Farmers Market, Ukrainian style

These two paintings are from Olechko, a cool blog I just came across through Global Voices Online - which I also highly recommend for anyone wondering about what the world outside the U.S. is blogging about.

Anyhow, this is pretty hardcore. Seriously, it's got to be freezing in the Ukraine around this time of year. But that isn't stopping some enterprising people from bringing what their garden produces into the city for some extra income. Looks like a pretty decent haul for the dead of winter - leeks, daikon and some root vegetables.

That said, I still feel very lucky to be living in San Francisco, the land of inexhaustible food and dining options.
