Today we sharpened the tools’ edges and cleaned them.
On Friday we learned how to water the inoculated mushroom logs and found some Reishi and Wine cap mushrooms in a separate bed.
Zucchini and yellow squash plants in the greenhouse that we harvested on Wednesday.
Today we bagged spices! The shiitake powder smelled incredible and I know know the process of drying and processing in order to make spice.
Today we harvested the last of the stinging nettle for tea! It really burned as we picked and washed it but the tea will be well worth it!
Today we harvested strawberries for the first time! They were the best strawberries I’ve ever had!
Today we harvested flowers for tea! We harvested the flowers off of the chamomile as well as roses!
On Monday we harvested stinging nettle for the herb program. While it was cool to hear about all of the medicinal properties the plant has it was not fun when I accidentally touched the nettle on a place not covered by my two pairs of gloves. I got pricked a few times and the formic acid really stings! The sting lasted most of the day, but overall it was a fun time.
