Our friends, Jeremy and Angie, (also known as the folks who sold us our MO house!) started raising bees at their new location. It’s 1.3 miles from us so very “local” honey. I’m sure some of their bees visit our blossoms daily.
This weekend they harvested their first honey and brought us a jar.
It even has our own custom made label. How cool is that?
You know what a saver I am. I hate to use it. I’d rather save it but that will not happen. I’m going to make biscuits this week and have honey and butter on my biscuit.
They are such wonderful people. Every day I’m so thankful our paths crossed . . for so many reasons.

Funny how some house sales happen. Our first home we sold to a young couple and remained friends for probably 20 years. They loved the wallpaper we put up and left it there for at least 10 years. After we moved to TX, they invited the old gang over every time we went back to visit family in CA. One or two other houses, we sold and never met the folks who bought the house. So glad you are where your Addie is and that you are friends with the previous owners.

We had one house in Lake Charles that we sold and made friends with the buyers and stayed friends probably 10 years. We moved away and left our houses in Kentucky and MO and never met the buyers. I never met the people who bought our Texas house. It does seem kinda weird to have a home where all your life happens, turn it over to someone else and never get to know them.

That’s so lovely. They probably appreciate you and Vince too.
That’s heartwarming! It was meant to be, you and Vince in that house.

How fun for them to be able to produce their own honey. We used to receive a gallon of local honey every year as “payment” for allowing the local honey producer keep hives on our property. They processed it all right there in town and was so yummy! Maybe it just tastes better because we know it is a local product, but honey is wonderful.

I know you already know this, but honey that is grown near you is the best thing you can do for colds or allergies! You may want to start using it now for your allregies.

Yes and these bees live 1.3 miles from me by car so it’s closer than that the way they fly.
