More Honey / Veggie List 5/16/15
More fresh flower bouquets will be ready for your table.
It was another great day for pulling honey. This was the second pull of the season and it was a doozie. About two hundred pounds from 9 hives. The farm is home to sixteen hives, seventeen if the lazy boy recliner chair is counted. That right, a few weeks ago Tonopah Rob was called out on a bee rescue and the lady who called said she thinks there is a nest of bees in her lazy boy…….she was right. Rob and one of his guys went over and picked up the whole chair and brought it back to the farm. Eventually the bees will be removed from the chair and put into a regular bee box.
This week more honey will be available at the farm stand as will the honey candy. Come and get it before it is all gone. The hours for the farm stand are still 8 to noon on Saturday.
Here’s the veggie list:
- Red and Green Cabbage
- Taco Onions
- Honey and Honey Candy
- Swiss Chard
- always a surprise or two
- one cracked glass honey jar
- due to the weather, Tonopah Rob is not attending the Fat Cat Farmers Market this Saturday. Only the farm stand in Tonopah will be open Saturday May 16, 2015. All CSA and customers must come to the farm to shop. Sunday May 17, 2015, the Creative Living Fellowship market will take place from 10 to 1 p.m. Also, Tucson Farmers Market will take place from 8 to noon.
