There will be a panel discussion on growing beans and grains in the Willamette Valley on January 20, from 1-4 p.m. at the Extension Building in Eugene. Two farms north of us, Sunbow Farm and Stalford Seed Farms, participated in “Bean and Grain Field Trials” last year, and representatives will be on hand to discuss what worked and what didn’t with growing, harvesting, and sales to the public. Beans. Beans, I tell you. Click here to download a flyer with more information about the panel discussion.
Also, since I’m announcing stuff, you definitely want to sign up for the next Master Food Preserver course, June in January, a class on making jams with frozen fruit. It’s *way* too cheap at $25 for the class, which runs from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on January 24.
