Andy and Lily planted an heirloom variety of dry corn called Oaxacan Green Dent. The harvest was yesterday. The ears need to finish drying, but then the possibilities are endless: tamales, tortillas, pancakes.... Maybe it will even make an appearance in next summer's Dirt to Dinner!
Frieda is a local spinner who is at the show grounds (just up the road from Journey's End) every September. This year she needed more roving to spin into yarn, so we brought her some from Zander and Kan. She was excited to have Journey's End alpaca fleece and said, "It spins beautifully!"

Since we started boiling a few days ago, you can stop by and see for yourself! Contact us to see what's going on.
