Finally back from my travels and have the chance to check out your blog. These pictures are so beautiful! Looking forward to reading more.

Lovely post, Rebecca. I also love the photo. I wish we had gone to the market to get some of his fruit when we were in Mendoza. Do they distribute their fruit to the city market you wrote about? We may go back in the summer.

Hi Rebecca, I love this story, it reminds of my grandfather (who was also a farmer and loved working his land and also bought out his brother and sister) and also of my childhood (we didn't have electricity until I was about 9 - I remember it was such an exciting experience when it happened). I hope all is going well for you, thanks for sharing this great story. Layla

"Now the farm is his, free and clear." Magic words for any farmer.

Lovely post Rebecca, American Gothic reference and all, albeit Argentina style. Your in-laws shine with truth and humanness, and there is remarkable beauty in that.

I love the first picture as well, and all the others too actually. It´s nice to see the work your father and mother in law do over there. I´ve always admired people who work the soil, there´s something pure in that. And he must enjoy knowing that he kept the family business running, struggles and all.

I really enjoyed this post, particularly that first photograph. Its got great presence, great impact.

And a great little boy, too. (g)

Just found your blog on Facebook no less!
I love the photos, especially the first one. There is so much character in the faces

Very nice looking family! Esteban is a cutie (Even with his head down, I can tell.). ;-) Did you say Don Caro also grows cherries? Love it!


Love the photos of the plums -- and of your in-laws, too. Hats off to your father-in-law, who has chosen an honorable life, and to your parents for preserving the family farm.

Beautiful photos and a great look at how plums are dried here. The photo of your in-laws is awesome. If I could, I'd steal, or ask permission to take, a bunch of those cañas for my house and yard. :)
