Things Are Warming Up At Sleepy Bees!

Things Are Warming Up At Sleepy Bees!

Spring sure didn't hang around long!  The heat is here already and seems like it has settled in to stay for awhile.  Of course, this is the busiest time of year for us here, so it is delightful to have it super hot for planting, weeding and landscaping!  <eyeroll>  All complaining aside though, we have been very busy and it is a great problem to have! Our original half acre of plants came out of the winter in great shape this year.  They have sent up their shoots and have tons of buds.  In the next week or so we...


Spring is Here!

Spring is Here!

Finally!  Spring is here.  For some reason, this past Winter seemed like it would never end.  Nothing terrible was happening.  The weather wasn't even all that bad, other than a couple of weeks. It just seemed to stretch on and on and on. So thankfully, after a 27 degree low last night, it looks like Spring is officially with us to stay.  This is our favorite time of the year.  Everything is getting going for us.  We get to introduce all the new products we have worked on over the winter to our customers, plant the new baby lavender plants...

Spring Craft Show Time!

Spring Craft Show Time!
What I found out at that first sale, and at every sale since then, is that people are awesome.  They are kind and supportive even if they aren't buying anything.  People love hearing our story and Jerry sure loves telling it!  They are genuinely curious and interested in hearing more.  They want to be able to visit the farm.  I think later this summer when the plants are blooming and we have an open house, we will have more visitors than we even imagined.
