Mango Season!

Posted by Bearfoot Flagg over 2 years ago

Lot's of projects underway at the farm here in Costa Rica! Join us in the land of Pura Vida!

It’s been a busy week but every week seems to be busy on the farm!

We just finished another area in the house with shelving made out of reclaimed pallets called Witch's Wall. Here we will be storing our fermented foods, teas (hibiscus, amaranth, lemongrass, lemon verbena), dried herbs (mint, rosemary, dill, turmeric), flour (yucca, banana), tinctures (papaya leaf, citronella, reishi, chaga, salvia), and much more!

Our compost bins are coming along as are the bamboo curtains we have been working on to shelter the porch and our hammock chill spot on the deck. We also picked up a trailer to help us haul large quantities of building materials for our upcoming construction projects.

The solar food dehydrator is getting very close to being finished. The tin foil is glued in which reflects the sun back onto the heating element which is made out of multiple layers of wire mesh painted flat black. All of the trays are finally cut and glued together and they just need the final coat of varnish and the mesh screen. After this we only need to install the plastic cover and the small roof. Then it is time to dehydrate some mangoes!

The mangoes are nearly ripe and we have thousands on the trees. We are also harvesting quite a few cashew fruits and are saving the nuts to experiment roasting them ourselves. In addition to this we have been harvesting yucca, plantains, bananas, acid oranges, guavas, and pineapples (including a rare local varietal called a white pineapple).

For more information on our volunteer and apprenticeship programs please see our website at earthayni.org.

Stay tuned for our weekly updates and we hope to see you in the land of Pura Vida!
