It’s pouring rain outside, and the first thing I think: Cancel our backpacking trip. It’s true. I’m nothing short of a wimp when it comes to “inclement weather.” I don’t want anything to do with it. Running in the rain is fine; hiking in the rain is doable. But backpacking in the rain? Nuh-uh. Count… Continue reading Confessions of a fair-weather backpacker
Long ago, somewhere in the midst of just-married land, I dubbed my husband “Honey Dude” and our new home, the “Honey Hive.” That was before beekeeping grew a little pea in our pod. Funny enough, we were watching “The Secret Life of Bees” (one of my favorite books) when I said I could picture Honey… Continue reading Honey Dude and the Honey Hive: Bees for beginners

Because, I know this is hard to believe but, canning is hard work! Well the truth is, making salsa is hard work. Just the tomatoes were… Continue reading Our very first canning adventure: from-the-farm salsa
I mentioned we were co-op members, but did I mention it is the loveliest thing ever? Honestly, it brings me such joy to trek those little rows of tomatoes. One for me, one for the tote. Two for me, two for the tote. I usually plan on going hungry and leaving stuffed. It’s beautiful. What’s… Continue reading Harvesting with Honey Dude
