Update

April 03, 2010

As usual we have a ton of things going on.  First, we made an offer on a 6+ acre property in a nearby town and after some negotiations our offer was accepted.  At this point we’re waiting for an appraisal and perk test to ensure it is truly ours.  We are trying to contain our excitement.  This will finally feel like a step in the right direction for us.

We’ve also started many, many seedlings in our garage.  Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, and lettuce (I’m sure I’m leaving out a few).  Some are going to a friend who is starting a CSA, others are being scattered around our garden and yard.

Next weekend we head to Morganton to pick up my second hive of bees.  I’m excited and a bit scared.  We don’t own an open back truck or car, so we’ll have the bees in the car with us so we have to  make sure they are tightly contained before leaving.  I’ve also never transferred a hive alone and was hoping to someone get them into the top bar hive I purchased over the winter.

Lots of excitement ahead.  :)

April 11, 2013

This year is shaping up to be another big festival year for us.  With the purchase of bubbles (our soapy van) we have the ability for the first time to transport proper furniture to our multi-day shows.  It was a huge change for us and came with some trepidation as we tried to decide what […]
