June in the Marsh

Photos by Barry Wallace
The Holland Marsh in upper King Township is in its annual transition from black to green, as the dark muck soil gives way to emerging green plants.   June is the month when black and green tones contrast vividly in the marsh.   The picture, at every turn, boasts of the bounty to come.

Monster machines and workers on their hands and knees are essential to what will be, hopefully, the perfect production of produce on which the Holland Marsh has built an international reputation. 
Please comment if you wish.
