I’m so happy to be home! Tomorrow I’m going to go crazy with my Garden Giveaway, putting packages together and contacting everyone who responded. I love the advice that was shared and the little peek into your gardening life. So thank you all for that!

I can’t wait to see what you all have been up to this last weekend. I took a few photos from our trip which I’ll share in the next couple days. I have a private post or two I need to get typed out sometime this week as well. It’s funny how these family trips always always seem to form a need to release serious tensions. I have so many things I want to get done now that I’m home but I’m off to bed for the night.

Here’s a random shot of where we buy our honey. The honey world isn’t a big one and it’s wonderful to discover that Fredrick in Cedar, who we buy honey from, knows our friend and honey producers in the Kootenays. We had a nice chat while he filled up our mason jars, which he proved himself correct in his insistence that the mason jar with honey would be 3 pounds even. Cam’s usually the honey buyer and this was my first time visiting Fredrick, even though we lived literally around the block when we first moved to the island.

    I can’t wait to hear about your trip! ;)

    I love that you go get your honey right at the source… we buy local honey here but we buy it in the store… I should definitely try to go there though!

    It’s cheaper to buy it from Fredrick and we can use any jar we want so it saves in that way too. His honey house is a real experience.

    I am soooo jealous! I’m not sure why, but I’ve never gone and looked for or contacted a local apiary other than at the market. My favourite thing is the honeycomb with the honey. It was my “candy” of choice in university. If we used more honey around here we would definitely have to look into something like what you’re doing. I really like how you can reuse your containers and know the person who takes care of the bees. Sounds perfect to me!
