CSA members gathered at Bee Heaven Farm recently for Gleaning Day. They brought potluck dishes to share, and bags and containers for their loot. Because on Gleaning Day, you’re allowed to forage for your veggies.
The challenge is to find what’s left. To the uninitiated, frondy carrot tops look like the weeds that surround them. But with a little effort, the orange treasures release their grip on the soil jump into your bag.
Bali the horse loves Gleaning Day, because people want to feel him carrots. Bali looooves carrots!
Gleaners braved scratchy thorns in the raspberry brambles and had a berry berry good day.
