So today, I bring you some of the loverly things, that summer homesteading activities bring, that start with the ****Letter P** and you can decide which one is your least favorite ;)
and a horrible case of
Lets just say canning, when its 100 degrees/85% humidity, with poison oak, is not OK.... but the peaches had NO sympathy as they sat bruised and getting softer by the minute, the peppers slowly losing their crisp, and the cucumbers stacking up in my fridge in ridiculous proportions, I had to woman up......

Ive spared you the picture of the poison oak, and will leave you with this pleasant photo:) ya cant have the sweet without the sour I suppose ;)

To market To market

woahh nelly, its been awhile since Ive posted a single word on here! I do greatly appreciate all of you following my poorly maintained blog! Summer is definetaly in full swing around here! Between the 24 Beehives, Gardens, canning and the Farmers Market its been crazy, in a really good way of course ;)
We have been picking and abundance of greenbeans, squash,, cucumbers, and tomatoes are really starting to ripen now! Plenty of produce for the market and enough for me fill the pantry with canned goods ...
If you are In the mountains of western NC, come see us at the Blowing Rock Farmers Market! We offer Raw Honey, fresh eggs, produce baskets(they make great gifts!) & an assortment of produce. Look for the * Bee Kind Family Farm* Booth! Ill try and post again soon!
