Organic refers to not only the fact that this cabbage was grown without the use of chemicals, but also to the nature of the design. It seemed to me a much more interesting as a black and white image, although the beautiful blueish green colors of the unfolding plant are equally compelling.

Brilliant yellow/orange marigolds are planted around the perimeter of the beds in an attempt to fend off the bugs amd a phony owl purchased from the nearby Farm and Fleet store is drafted into service standing watch over the garden patch. It won't be long till this is a batch of fresh cole slaw.

Yes, this image definitely works wonderfully in b&w! I'm such a slave to color, I forget how compelling b&w can be.

I love this picture. I think black and white pictures bring out the character and details more than color pictures.
