Seed SavingPosted: October 17, 2015 Filed under: Child Centered Activities, Farming off the Farm, In the Kitchen 3 Comments
This year we grew Good Mother Stallard pole beans for the Seed Temple in Estancia, New Mexico <followthegoldenpath.org>. Our first time growing pole beans, I wasn’t sure how to dry them. While I researched, Ella walked into the garden, plucked from the vine one dried pod, pulled it apart, and…VOILA!…green beans had turned a gorgeous mottled red. Exquisite, fascinating, and a great shared lesson in seed saving.
We planted ten seeds and now have ten x ten x…an abundant cache to send back, to share with friends, and to sow next season.
such perfect earthy hands!
beautiful. pure ken in the hands of the child….
the fruits of the earth… 🙂
