First, thanks to everyone who came out for the Expo. Was a really fun day and I appreciated all the interest in prepping and spinning wool! ( anyone looking for the video bits from last year’s virtual wool processing class- you can find them at http://fullyfleeced.com/basics-of-wool-processing/ )
Was my first time in the new Stanwood High School building, and it is truly enormous. Nice that we were able to be in the same classroom the whole day, but hauling wheels and equipment in and out kind of wiped me out. In future I will be sure to make better use of the 4H helpers for that sort of thing.
Between morning and afternoon classes I had a chance to check out the trade show, where I picked up some neat stuff.
Local Honey from Bruce Bowen Bees ,
Artsy animal print notecards from Skagit Animals In Need
And, it turns out that one of the vendors, Skagit Gourmet Mushrooms, is right down the road from us! Chatted with Mark for a bit about the various types of ‘shrooms he grows, and came home with a King Oyster growing kit. So excited to get started with it
A good day all around, but rather exhausting. So today I hope to relax and re-charge.
Have a good week everyone! 🙂
