This week a few folks at Eden Hall installed three apiaries on the field below the moveable high tunnel where graduate student Casey Vogan will be studying and researching all things bees. Stay tuned for honey.
Also this week, interns and GAs followed Allen Matthews into the woods on a hunt for wild chanterelles, which proved successful. We also harvested shiitakes and bush beans. Back home, I destemmed the shiitakes and sliced into thin strips, popped the ends off the beans and snapped them in half, sauteed them both up with a little garlic and olive oil, added some lemon zest and juice, parmesan, fresh basil and tossed into linguine. Finished with a dash salt and grind of pepper. Delicious dinner, quick and easy.
