I've been reminded recently by family and friends that I haven't posted anything for a while. When I looked, I couldn't believe it has been almost a month. Well, things are good, but I've just been incredibly busy with the garden, bees and life in general for the past few weeks.
This picture tells a lot of the story. I've been canning green beans. There will be a later post on the great greasy green bean adventure. I've also harvested my first honey and made my first wax block. What fun! The wax is pure, golden yellow and smells wonderful. I'll use it to make candles for the holiday season.
Seems like everything I've done recently has been filled with excitement, but the biggest event was the first of the bear sightings in the garden. I'll tell that story later, also, but thank goodness for our dogs, Jack and Ansley. I still have 2 beehives in tact thanks to them.
The much needed rain has quit so I'm out the door to pick more beans, cucumbers and tomatoes. I have a lot of catching up to do on this blog and I promise myself I will get it done. I created this blog to be a better record-keeper, but I'll never be Thomas Jefferson. :(
