Hi, I’m Anna and I live in coastal Northern California, traditional lands of the Ohlone, Muwekma, and Ramaytush, where temperatures rarely go above 70 degrees or below 50. I have been gardening most of my life and also bake bread, so learning more about grains seems a natural melding of the two. Two years ago I started growing flour corn in my small garden. This year I got permission from a neighbor to plant an empty lot and expanded to about 600 sq ft of corn (yet to be harvested!) among other crops which I share with neighbors.
Pictured: me in my corn field, some of last year’s harvest, and a fresh loaf of bread.
