Tending the Crops

John B. Capewell’s brother owned a farm in Westville, NJ, and this looks to be it. The long lanky fellow on the left is John’s brother. I don’t know who the fellow is on the right.

Here’s the entire negative:
As with all of the photographs in the Capewell Collection Glass Negative Collection, I placed this 5″ x 7″ glass negative on a lightbox and shot it with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The “processing” was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.

    I always remove my tie when working in the garden, too.

    I don’t know who the fellow is on the right.

    Orville Redenbacher’s father ?

  3. Tina says:

    Maybe that where I went wrong with my tomato crop – I should have dressed better!

  4. JT says:

    Don’t feel bad; this year, I planted onions for the first time and the ones I harvested were smaller than the ones I had planted.
    I have bigger wild onions that grow in my yard.

    So…… you know what that means…….

    I gotta take a leek.

  5. Tina says:

    Now would probably be a good time to harvest anything that’s left in your garden, Sandy’s bringing lots of rain and kale force winds.

  6. JT says:

    Lettuce pray.

  7. Tina says:

    Chive got a feeling we’re going to need them.

  8. JT says:

    We shouldn’t let the spectre of the storm beet us spiritually.

  9. Tina says:

    Agreed, a little wind and rain isn’t going to squash my spirit!

  10. JT says:

    But it might cause the birds to swoop endive.

  11. Tina says:

    Hopefully not into the Schuylkill, the currant might be too strong for them.

  12. JT says:

    Bean there, done that.

  13. Tina says:

    You swam in the Schuylkill? I yam impressed!

  14. JT says:

    At the risk of sounding corny, I swam in Lake Erie and lived .

  15. Tina says:

    You mustard the courage to swim in Lake Erie? Impressive!

  16. JT says:

    It was peer pressure; I had to ketchup with my friends.

  17. Tina says:

    Oh, but I bet you relish the memories.

  18. JT says:

    My friends and I take turnips remembering.

  19. Tina says:

    I love when you pepper me with tales of your youth.

  20. JT says:

    Alas, I’ve omitted the salty ones.

  21. Tina says:

    Just remember turnip-bout is fair play.

  22. JT says:

    I’ll remember; kumquat what may.

  23. Tina says:

    Aren’t we a pear?

  24. JT says:

    Orange you glad we did this ?

  25. Tina says:

    I’m cherry glad!

  26. JT says:

    Next month is the Grape American Smokeout.

  27. Tina says:

    Speaking of smokeout, did you hear about the really good herb? It was a tarragon of virtue.

  28. JT says:

    Unlike Rosemary’s baby.

  29. Tina says:

    “Tannis, anyone?”

  30. JT says:

    I don’t have thyme.

  31. JT says:

    Sounds like a “curry up and wait” deal.

  32. Tina says:

    I’m awaiting your fennel word.

  33. JT says:

    I need some sage advice.

  34. Tina says:

    I’d be happy to help, as long as we don’t get into an argue-mint.

  35. JT says:

    I’ll tell ya after Rosemary leaves.

  36. Tina says:

    It’s parsley my fault for encouraging you.
