There is no doubt that the drought has caused much wringing of hands and worry for us at Wintergreen. But, as usual, whatever the weather conditions are, something suffers and something thrives. This year it is the beans that are thriving. Just finished Frenching and blanching another batch, ready to serve at a Wintergreen event in the fall or winter.
We’ll be sending out a newsletter soon with upcoming events and workshops. Meanwhile, mark your calendar for our Annual Fall Open House, in combination with the Natural Building Tour, which will take place on Sunday, October 2. This year’s event is supported in part by the Community Foundation of Ottawa. We’re delighted to have their support. We might even serve some of those garden beans!
