Solar roasted a test batch of wild Chicory root today. Chicory grows in disturbed soil all over North America, the blue flower is easy to identify. The root makes a coffee like beverage that has hints of roasted marshmallows.
Thanks to everyone who helped fund our Kiva loan to expand our rooftop solar array! The cool thing about Kiva is that they don’t take fees from their lenders or borrowers; every dollar you give goes to the recipient, and you get it back in full. Kiva covers their operating expenses from separate donations. Interest free lending is a great way to make a difference, and there are lots of worthy projects there to check out. https://www.kiva.org
