The farmers market really does bring a community together! 👥👥

I met both of theses ladies while vending at the Pendleton Indiana Farmers Market. Ashley (in the middle) is another vendor, I met two seasons ago but she was set up on the opposite end of the market, we only had one conversation when I walked past her booth, was intrigued by her medium and started following her social. Then, about this same time last December, Ashley posted theses adorable felt hearts that I just had to have. We met at Falls Perk Coffee House for my order pick up where we enjoyed that connection so much we asked to set up next to each other the following market season where we had the most fun shenanigans while “working”. 😁

And Carla, well, she has been a weekly market customer long before either of us ever joined. Carla would stop by each of our booth’s for a short conversation as her and her daughters would gather all their market goodies. However, this past season, with Ashley and I sitting together, our visits with Carla lasted much, much longer. And the shenanigans increased. 🤣

So when I ordered another 6 felt hearts from Ashley (making this my third box) for Christmas gifts, she suggested another meet up at the Perk and to invite Carla to join and I happily agreed! 🤗

Good coffee, conversation, crafts and community! My cup truly overflowth. ☕️

If you need any last minute gifts, I highly recommend shopping local and small and hitting up my friend, Ashley, owner and creator of The Philosophical Phoenix. You and your recipient will have absolutely no complaints. 😘

Happy Small Business Saturday! 🏬

I spent the day out shopping my local small town shops because you supported me SO BIG during the farmer’s market season, I had no product left to sale today. Which is humbling and bittersweet. 🍯

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for shopping local and supporting my tiny business. Thank you for every like, comment, referral, share and purchase you’ve made throughout the year. My business would be nothing without your support and I am so very grateful for each one of you making this journey possible. 🫶🏻

Here’s to more years ahead together with plenty of honey! 🎉

Tasty Tuesday…..

If you or your family and friends love sugar cookies but aren’t as krafty in the kitchen as you’d like to be, (🙋🏻‍♀️ lookin in the mirror) < then I must tell you about Charmed Cookies.

Christian is known for her sugar cookies and I’m a sugar cookie snob but theses are the best! 😋 She also makes other delicious cookies like my favorite banana pudding cookie but we’ve also enjoyed candy corn, chocolate sugar cookie, to name a few. 🍪

Not only can you buy the cookies to eat, but you can have fun with them too. She makes some on sticks to make faces with or cookies you can color in on your own.🖍️

For even more hands on fun, Christian offers an occasional cookie class. Perfect your skills or just have fun with friends, you won’t wanna miss it.👩🏻‍🍳

She pops up here and there, like at the Pendleton American Legion - Post 117 this Saturday, so be sure to give her a follow so you can keep her cookies stocked in your home all holiday season. Be the hostess with the mostess without all the workess 🪄

Q: You wanna know what the best thing about tasty Tuesday after the farmers market has ended for the season?

A: I get to showcase my daughter’s clean and healthy recipe creations in the meantime. 😋

Today was a whole organic banana tossed into the air fryer then topped with a mixture of whole unsalted peanuts, whole walnuts, unsweetened coconut, raw local honey and peanut butter with a dollop of whipped cream. Healthy, clean and delicious too! 😋

Tasty Tuesday ~ Halloween style 🎃

If you don’t know this about me, I’m a tad nerdy and use whatever chance I get to have some silly shenanigans. 🤡

I usually make my kids mummy dogs (aka pigs in a blanket) for Halloween dinner but tonight it’s gonna be Halloween pasta. 🍝

I like most candy but it doesn’t feel like fall if I don’t get a handful or two of candy corn with peanuts. 🥜

What about you?
Do you make your family a special festive meal on Halloween?

What’s your favorite candy?

Got new veils! 🥳 and it was a celebration for sure.

We realized when getting into the hives early morning just to feed, the bees don’t seem to care much about us. Therefore, the entire suit is not really needed. And oh boy, was the veil only nice! I can not even begin to explain the ease it made in today’s feeding. 🙌🏻 Have a happy day!•

Had to switch the entrance on the Godbee hive from a mouse guard to robber cover due to some yellow jackets hanging around. Yellow jackets are bad news for honey bees, so when one made it’s why in, this came out and was put on the front of the deep. The hive is strong enough to protect itself against a couple YJ but we didn’t want any more coming back. 🚪

Tasty Tuesday…..

I saved the best for last < Brenda’s Oven! 🤗

Brenda has been around Pendleton for quite a while and she’s everyones favorite! 🫶🏻 I was fortunate enough to be placed one spot over from her my first year at the market and lucky enough to sit directly next too her last year and this, so needless to say I’ve had tons of her delicious goodies but she’s also become my friend. 🥰 That’s the good news. The bad news is I take her closeness for granted and usually forget to take a picture cuz we’re gabbin too.🤷🏻‍♀️

Brenda’s Oven is most known for her cheesecakes. 🍰 She does regular cheesecakes, flavored cheesecakes, cheesecakes layered with other cakes, etc. There are also so many other delicious treats that come outta Brenda’s oven such as soft pretzels, sourdough bread that levels up anything you add it too, brownies, cookies, special requests, old fashioned favorites and lots of her personal creations. Cheesecake flavors and treats change from week to week so it’s a special place to stop on Saturdays to see what she’ll have fresh outta the oven. 🥨

There is only one more Saturday to catch her at the Pendleton Indiana Farmers Market this season and then it’s by special personal reach out only. So hurry 🏃‍♀️

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 🤩

I saw wonder, a cute fuzzball and amusement. My farmer friends saw a w**d and a silly girl taking pictures. 📷 When I shared pictures of my morning adventures with my husband, he saw a nuisance and a nut. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Guess it really does depend on how you look at things. 🥸

Tasty Tuesday….. the honey bee’s favorite!

SUGAR WATER 🐝

We’re feeding the bees a 1:1 mixture of water and sugar. Equal parts means it’s super sugary just the way they like it! 💛

We’ll feed our bees (only 2 hives at this time) as often as they need until we’re 30 days out from freezing daytime temperatures. 🌡️ Here in Indiana, we’re not sure when that will be, so we have to keep watch. Hopefully it will bee enough sweet assistance! 🤞🏻

📝 Full Disclosure: My original thought philosophy was I’m never going to feed my bees! God made them perfectly, so they will do what they do and I’m just going to assist them so they stay healthy and provide us extra honey. And I’ve been fortunate not to have to feed any up until this point. But with growing our hive numbers means a change in my perspective. 🤔

I’ve been taking notes and watching two hives extra close, the new nuc and the Godbee. I’ve hesitated as long as I could, but I came to a point where I needed to make the decision to start feeding theses hives, combine them together or let nature happen, because as they are now, they absolutely will not survive the winter. Just doing nothing and letting them go is NoT responsible beekeeping. I HaVe to give them a fighting chance! 🥊

If I truly believe My job as a beek is to assist the bees so they are they healthiest, strongest hive they can bee, then I MuST feed them. That’s my duty as their keeper! I owe them that! I owe them nothing short of providing my best effort as they are giving me their best work! 🫶🏻 This is what true Teamwork is all about! So sugar water it is! Enjoy my bee babies! 🤍
