Preparing for a catalog photo shoot…

Searching for the perfect radish.

Searching for the perfect radish.

It seems like every day through the late spring into fall Jere takes a trip to the garden for a photo shoot with a new veggie variety. This week we took photos of radishes, parsnips and some new-to-me root veggies called Scorzonera. I’ve read online they taste like oysters. Hmm, this could be interesting! We’re busy at work on the 2010 catalog. It’s a crazy time of year and I never know what the next day holds, but it’s always an adventure.

Scorzonera. Any recipes?

  1. Love this picture. Jere is outstanding in his field and so is His daughter….sweet!

  2. Garden photography is an interesting subject. I never really thought about it until I read “Garden to Order”, and several articles which explained just how painstaking it sometimes is to shoot photos for a seed catalog. I don’t know how obsessive y’all are, but there are some photographers who will chuck 5 shots in the trash for every one that they keep and use in the catalog!
