Seguin Trade Days
It’s been one of our busiest weekends in a while and we actually had to split up in order to cover different events. Belinda and I headed down to the town square for Seguin Trade Days early Saturday morning. Thankfully, Mark was able to help us set up the single tent and then unload all the honeys, beeswax products and gift baskets. Then he had to head back to the Bee Ranch for an Introduction to Beekeeping class (we had ten students this weekend!). Belinda and I had steady business all morning pretty much – that’s good. I think people are starting to think holidays because we had several people discuss gift-giving and placing orders for gift baskets. I loved hearing that! By the way, just so you know, you CAN place an order with us for gift baskets for Christmas. We haven’t had a chance to get the new products (gift baskets and pine cone candle) on the website yet so just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information or to order. 🙂
SMILE! YOU’RE HOLDIN’ BEES!
While the ladies were down on the square, the men were back at the Bee Ranch teaching another big group of wonderful students. While I had fun on the square, I did miss being at the class as well. It’s great to meet people so interested in beekeeping! The class got a real treat this weekend. Remember the 28 Olivarez queens Mark got in the mail earlier this week? Well, as part of class, he had the students help him install two of them in the learning hives. Sound like they all had a great time. We love sharing new experiences with folks! After class was over, Mark and David cleaned up and then Mark joined us at booth on the square. Thank goodness because he had some fans looking for him but they had to settle for me and Bel. 🙂
HONEY RECIPE WINNER: HONEY CURRY CHICKEN
Finally, we wrapped up our busy weekend with a new recipe that won our weekly recipe promotion. If you have a great honey recipe you’d like to share, be sure to send it to email@example.com. Each week a recipe is selected and the person will get a jar of GBR honey! AND the recipe may end up on our website. This week’s winning recipe is the super-awesome Honey Curry Chicken. WOW. I made it this evening and it was not only easy to prepare, but also delicious. I told Mark it’s the first curry recipe I have liked that wasn’t Vietnamese or Indian. 🙂 We both highly recommend this one!
COMING UP THIS WEEK
We are heading to Gonzales on Friday for the Come & Take It Festival! That’s right – one of our favorite events is already here. Hard to believe it’s been a year already. Last year we sold out by Saturday and were so tired we didn’t go back Sunday. Well, we have a lot more honey this year as well as more new products so we plan to be there all three days. You folks in Gonzales be sure to come by and visit! We will have a double booth very close to where we were last year, near the fire station side of the square – with our backs to the theatre. See you there!
