The bolita beans have been cut. Now Farmer Dean has to thrash them. This is the process of separating the bean from the hull. The thrashing is done with a bean combine. After the beans have been thrashed they will be taken to the bean cleaner for cleaning and bagging. We anticipate having them in the Farm Market this week.
We have also begun the winter squash & sweet onion harvest. Baskets brimming with lovely & tasty winter squash are filling the Farm Market as well as 25 lb. & 10 lb. mesh bags of our dry sweet onions. These crops signal the beginning of fall & winter for us. We look ahead to winter suppers of baked winter squashes and and dishes laden with fresh sweet onions. How about you?
