From Seed to Paper

plant hemp, make paper

Linda, Gino & Jonas

Episode 10 Closing Out 2021

The farm in New Mexico was a success but not the kind I had in mind. I flew down to clean up a hot crop, modest as it was, and to plant a winter cover crop of crimson clover.

Given that it was post-harvest I cooked a harvest feast for Jonash, Gino and Linda. I brought a little bit of Cascadia to Puerto de la Luna. I cooked salmon with shallots from my garden, roasted blue potatos with garlic and fresh rosemary from Jonas’ garden, green beans with dried &reconstitued shiitake mushroom and fresh mint and big *ss salad. A good time was had by all. #hugs #laughter

Things I Learned This Summer
  - If you didn’t bring it, you ain’t got it.
  - Opportunities, obstacles and options
  - The greater the planting density, the less the weed pressure.
  - Without modern hemp specific tools, processing hemp for fiber in 2021 feels like a Williamsburg reenactment.
