WEEK # 3 “Abandoned”


I was at the Sarasota, Florida Farmers Market on a Saturday morning and noticed this Jackfruit left out on the sidewalk. Jackfruit (Artocarpus  Heterophyllus) is the largest fruit that is actually produced on a tree and can weigh up to 80 pounds. It is native to South and Southeastern Asia and thrives in the tropical lowlands.

Threshing boardIMG_2336

This is a Threshing Board and it is used for harvesting wheat in the country of Turkey. This board is owned by my friend Mustafa and his wife Cathy. The board has been in Mustafa’s family for many generations. It is used by having  an animal such as an ox to pull it while a human sits on the board to help keep it right side up. The board has very  sharp stones that cuts the wheat. The satchel that is hanging on the front of the board is for them to carry food or other small items.  Mustafa remembers his father and grandfather using this board. His father would go to the market and use the satchel to hold the food that he brought back to the family as  he rode on his donkey.
