Great workshop on tortilla making. I've since acquired the equipment to make them at home. I also cooked up some of your dent corn using mineral lime [cal]. Who ever thought corn could be so good? The corn mixed with beans on a sourdough tortilla makes a hearty meal. Cheers! Kevin
David and I are interested in your storage foods CSA. Let us know when you know more how it will work.
Angela and David MacLeod
2012 Will be an exciting year for several other reasons. For the first time I will be offering a storage foods CSA in cooperation with our friends at Dragon Tongue Farm. 20 shares will be available and will include dry legumes, grains, and other storage crops such as garlic, winter squash, potatoes, and onions. Please let me know if you might be interested and I will email or call you once we have the cost calculated.
We are forming at TW communications team and I was wondering if you might be interested. We'll be helping promote TW events, doing press releases, social networking, and making sure our marketing stuff is consistent and upbeat! If you would like to help in a small or large way- join us at the Public Market on May 25 at 6:30 pm.
PS: If you have any questions feel free to email me at kateclark101 at hotmail dot com.
I would be delighted to talk with you about the studio upstairs.
Basically this is a nice large room with a lot of light; it is carpeted. Bathroom upstairs and sitting room area goes with rental. The sitting room has plenty of room for a table chairs, small refrigerator. No kitchen up, so the kitchen is shared. I have it well stocked but there are cupboards that you would be able to use. I don't use the upstairs except for one front furnished bedroom that I keep open for occasional guests and family when visiting.
When would you like to see the land & studio? I work days in Bellingham but will be at home Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Hi Krista! I'll be in away in the wilds & woods for a week or two. Would you keep an eye on the grain/bean and seed group while I'm away.
I"m back mid Sept...Should be time then to plan a fall seed swap for Oct or Nov Also fine to phone and ask spouse Don to help out with any harvest/threshing work parties you plan.
Beans are up... 2 / 4 varieties at least. Not sure how much the plastic helped - it was on the rows for 2 days. Temps are climbing so they should all pop up soon. Got to start thinking about trellises...
This weather sure sucks for germinating beans! I threw some clear plastic over a few rows to warm up the soil...its been a week + and still no leaves. I dug up one and it had about 1/4" of root - so they are alive but growing soooo slow. How are they looking in your fields?
Hi! Re your extra bean packages. A couple ideas: This Sat there are some school garden work parties, and Cascade Cuts has their annual fundraiser and there will be a table for CLSR that is giving out compost tea for a donation. My guess is either of those places would be able to use the beans....Otherwise, I don't do marketing either...unless folks come right out to the garden...
Hi Krista, Thanks for hooking me up with the seed packet! I'm going to ask about specific planting options for each plant in the small grains group, since I'm a newbie in this realm. Maybe Heather K will also offer advice to bring us up to speed!
Krista! I would be interested in at least one of your backyard grain-bean kits!
If you and any other seed-savers show up to help set up Thursday afternoon, I'm sure we can request table space if one has not yet been planned for!
So Much Fun to connect with you Farmer-Researcher Krista!
Our community will be blessed by your vision & work!
I'm looking forward to more good times laughing, sharing, & working on our garden dreams & seed visions!
