Winnowing the indigo

Winnowing the indigo was actually fun. After the indigo dries in the sun, it is gathered up in a pile and then stomped on--barefoot or shoes. The stomping crumbles the dried leaves off of the stems. The stems are separated from the dried indigo and the dried indigo gets stored in bags. Later the indigo will have to be composted to prepare it for the vat. I got some great pictures and video to post as soon as I get time to do a little editing. The sunlight was pretty bright and I may need to correct for that in my pics.
