My It Has Been A Long Time!!!

Well, it has certainly been a long time since I have added a bolg entry and I am about to rectify that situation.  We have been busy preparing ourselves for the upcoming season and trying to finally shake off this years winter! 

Last week I made a nice batch of soap which will be placed in our two guestrooms in about a couple of weeks as it still has to cure. 

Trip Advisor Green Leaders Award

This past Tuesday, April 22nd (Earth Day, ironically enough) we received an email from Trip Advisor telling us that we had been awarded a silver certificate in their "Green Leaders" award program.   We are proud to have been have been recognized for doing our part to help the environment.  We take pride in all of our practices which include:  Composting, recycling, using rain barrels, using free solar power  = clothes lines, and growing our own fruit and vegetables among other efforts. We are doing our part!

Spring Things

Well, Spring has finally decided to stay here in the Hudson Valley!  We have been busy getting ready for our upcoming season.  The snow plows are off the tractor and Jeep Grand Wagoneer, our rain barrels are re-installed, and things are starting to take shape in the garden.  I've planted some beets, carrots, cabbage, and various lettuces.  I'm hoping by next week to plant onion sets and get some seed potatoes started.  All three of our bee hives are going great guns so we are expecting some honey this year!
