this is what we do.

July 25, 2009

when our heads aren’t in the clouds thinking outlandish thoughts, our hands are usually up to something.  which usually results in dirt under our fingernails or animal feces on our pant-legs (we are farmers – getting dirty is what we do) or with really good food in our bellies (after we’ve washed our hands, but not always after washing our clothes).  however, some of us recently have been working on projects for the Waste-Not Wagon – and we’re eager to share our progress.

some solar ovens.

today's menu:  farm fresh granola.  made with homestead sorghum and farm ground wheat germ.

note:  cooker on left hits 175F and cooker on right hits 250F.  still working out the kinks.  just think:  cruising down the highway, our fumes smelling like french fries and granola baking on the rooftop.  splendid! other cooked goods thus far:  brown rice.  and honey-peanut-butter-oatmeal cookies.  also brewing sun tea for kombucha.

tucked between our greywater clothes-washer and a dirty pair of carhartts – this barrel’ll get us going ’til we know what we’re doing.  figuring out where to put the gutters on the bus’ll be the fun part.

creating compost.

sometimes we reclaim waste from different locations around town.  like dumpsters.  and some folks call this trespassing onto private property.  others call it gross.  we call it composting.  and sometimes there’s something worth eating, but if not . . .

ALSO:  just received espresso oyster mushroom spawn in the mail, as recommended by scotty at the rhizome collective.  our vermicompost is thriving.  and the sun is spectacularly shining each and every day.  God bless y’all.
