Harvest begins…

Greetings Bona Fide friends and supporters,

Hello everyone. Well now its dry. No dry time when the usual patterns predicted and now it is dry. The coast and here in Granada from where I am updating have been unseasonably dry, Ometepe much better but this last week gave us sunny weather great for certain kinds of work but hard on planters and farmers. Good weather to dry beans though which brings me to the first foto, the START of our red bean harvest at BF. OG red beans. Whoo hoo!!

As I continue you those of you who have had the distinct pleasure of meeting our kitchen manager, Clemencia will recognize her in the foto that speaks to a big BF theme, abundance. All of the pictured food is BF grown, you will notice multiple varieties of squash and cucumber. So far so good, not buying much more than salt for the kitchen now, BF coffee, BF rice, BFcorn and VEggies. NICE work to everyone who has nade and is making this possible. One wil also notice the foto of younf cron as the elote ready, young corn that can be eateb con and all in soups or stews. Yummy or picadillo. Yum.

Lotus, oh yeah, that is the flower and plant featured in the last two fotos. No wonder it is the enduring symbol for the buddha.

Well folks, I gotta run. See ya on the isla!!!

Best to all,

Chris Shanks
