Saturday we visited the Mill City Museum & Farmer’s Market. We got a free threshing lesson using a method called flailing – basically beating a pile of dry grain stalks with a simple log and chain tool until the seeds come out. We were surprisingly good at it. But, then, we’ve been flailing for years.
The Mill City Opera is one of our favorite dates of the year. Now in it’s fourth year, the opera is staged among the ruins of the former Gold Medal Flour factory (now Mill City Museum). Sitting under the stars on a warm summer night with a cold beer, gorgeous music, and my best guy beside me: pretty much heaven on earth.
