esides firing Bouja bowls and painting window components yesterday, my folks and I also dug up all of our beets from the garden and canned them. My mom uses a french-fry cutter to expedite the process:) I have to say, peeling beets is one of the most fun jobs on the Meyer Farm. It reminds me of that Halloween game where you pass gross things under a blanket, with the peeled grape “eyeballs”.
The Intention of this Blog
is to share my adventure of repurposing my family farm into art space and re-rooting myself in an 'old fashioned' way of life with my folks, the original Do-It-Yourselfers. It is a platform for me to share with others the things that I learn as I apprentice myself to my parents and grandparents.
