It’s September! Nobody even told me! Do you know how I found out? I began to lose focus a little bit. With more or less all the fall planting done, management of the farm switches to mostly harvesting, washing and packing and disassembly. We begin to prepare the farm for hibernation.
Aside from the harvesting, washing, packing and markets, the schedules and deadlines get a little fuzzier. Well, that trellis needs to be disassembled but it doesn’t absolutely have to happen today. So I find my mind wandering. I start to read more, hang out with friends more, watch football, think about vacation… I’m just not completely focused on the farm like I am the rest of the season. It was these signs that clued me in to the fact that it is September.
This September means green beans. Which means Jason's easy Tamari green beans
Tamari Green Beans
Peanut Oil (or other oil that tolerates a high temperature without smoking)
Clean up green beans. Snap in half. Heat a wok or large skillet until it is very hot, add peanut oil. When the oil is just beginning to smoke, add the green beans and stir fry for about three minutes. Add Tamari and continue to stir fry green beans while the Tamari reduces to nothing. Reduce heat and continue cooking green beans until desired tenderness. Add additional Tamari or water as needed.
