- Our granddaughter came for a visit.
- We finished out the season at the farmers' market; it reopens next May.
- I had two successful projects with my dehydrator: dried shiitakes to use in soups this winter and flax/chia/sunflower crackers.
- I had two failed projects with my dehydrator: raw butternut squash cookies (too thin) and sweet potato chips (too thick - I bought a 1mm food processor disk on ebay to attempt again since we have so many sweet potatoes; maybe I can make regular potato chips, as well).
- As part of my effort to be more sustainable, I purchased eight plates at Goodwill to help replace paper plates (which we did compost) at our various meetings. I'm also going to look into using scrap fabrics to make cloth napkins. I like any events we host to be as low impact as possible.
- Bill harvested the black beans after letting them dry on the plants and I sorted and stored them. We love using black beans in a variety of dishes, especially the traditional Cuban black beans and yellow rice.
- We were finally able to visit our friends who run Four Corners Farm in Rocky Mount on their annual customer appreciation day.
- Tonight we're going to a local production of Macbeth with a twist - it's set in a 1920s New York speakeasy.
- Tomorrow, after our CSA and other deliveries, we're heading to a local health food store. The owner invited us to sell in front of her store and we've already gotten a couple of pre-orders.
Have a great weekend!
