Lean, Mean GLEAN
I was a lean, mean, gleaning MACHINE today! Our group of about 12 people at one time gleaned a gorgeous orchard of Liberty apples in Roy, WA on a typical Washingtonian day. It was cloudy but not rainy, cool but not cold and spirits were high. It was quite simply…perfect. The birds were chirping and the bees were buzzing. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my morning. In 3 hours our group gleaned the entire orchard. We must have done over 50 trees. Total glean?
That is some serious gleaning my friends. :) It could give each person in Colfax, WA 1 pound AND probably a piece of apple pie. It would also mean 8 pounds a DAY for one year for one person! HAHA!
I ended up with 20 pounds of ground fall apples myself… Any gluten/dairy/sugar-free ideas????
