It was a nice day and I wanted to get out of the house, so I took a drive to the orchard. I picked up a five pound bag of galas for mom, a bushel of some sort for Mrs. Chambers to make pies, and a 5 lb bag of ginger golds for myself.
I’m feeling like shit, with a touch of a cold from my allergies, so I swung by the honey stand to pick up some local honey, some honeycomb, and some bee pollen. I went to Bedillion Honey Farms, which is a great little place. I picked up some orange blossom, some buckwheat honey, and one I have never seen before, Japanese Knotweed. I did a little taste test, and the orange blossom and buckwheat are exactly what you would expect (light and fruity on the former, deep and rich and honestly just tastes like farm air on the latter), but the knotweed was something special, and I think I need to eat more to really get a taste on it.
Fuck Donald Trump.
