Work party friday — come help us put a big dent in the piles of drying bean pods! The beans have been up in the hay mow since fall, drying out in their pods and on the vines. We’re looking for all the help that we can get to thresh the beans from the vines and then winnow out the chaff. It’s a fun job, especially with a good group of folks. The party starts at 9am, with a break for a hearty, bean inspired lunch. Come for as little or as much of the day as you can. The hay mow is indoors, but not heated so dress warmly.
James cooked up a batch of maple-strawberry granola for the free choice veggie share this week—our own wheat bran, corn meal, maple syrup and dehydrated strawberries combined with oats and walnuts. It’s a little sweet, very crunchy, and delectable served with milk or yogurt!
