September 30, 8:45 a.m.
The onions are ready and just waiting for us to swoop in and scoop them up. It looks like a great crop that will keep us busy all Fall.
When: Check in at 8:45 am at Collegium Cafe parking lot (3525 East “A” St., Pasco).
Where: WSU test fields. Let’s all meet at the Collegium and caravan to the gleaning site. If you can’t make the check in, please wait at the “A” street entrance or call me after 9:10 am and I’ll guide you to where we are gleaning.
What: Those big beautiful onions everyone likes so much.
Wear: Good supportive shoes, whatever you need for sun protection. It can be a little cool in the morning and warm by noon, so layers are definitely recommended as well as gloves and a hat. Bring water and something to sit on if you like. Buckets will be available to use for sitting.
We will bring six totes to fill. After the gleaning, sweet corn is available for your personal use. The corn was sprayed late resulting in a lot of earworm. The earworm is harmless and easily removed by breaking or cutting off the top of the ear, the rest of the corn is good. and I was at the field today sampling the corn and it is still very, very tasty.
As always with onions there is plenty of room for everyone and this is a gleaning for kids of all ages. First time gleaners are very welcome.

We will be picking cobs from the stalks into buckets, then knocking the stalks down as we move through the field. Volunteers will be needed to pick corn, and to haul buckets to the trailer. We have 6 big bins to fill, we’ll gather corn until the bins are filled (which took about an hour last week)… and then you may glean some corn for yourself.
