This is Manny @goawayfatman . He painted the gorgeous new honeybee mural on our shop door, but more than that, he’s been helping @oldbluerawhoney and me out with beekeeping and honey processing since June. He’s headed back to California next week, which is sad news, BUT he’ll be around for our big mural reveal/honey tasting party this Sunday from noon to 4 if you want to swing by and meet the artist in person. We’re hoping we can talk Manny into coming back next spring for another season of beekeeping and art projects. 🤞🏽🤞🏽#mannyarechiga #oldbluerawhoney

Loot from last night’s #portlandpreservationsociety meeting: fig jam with orange and thyme, pickled jalapeños, apple butter, lemon pickled mustard seeds, spicy pickled okra, cranberry-plum sauce, and green tomato pickle. I brought @goawayfatman along to experience the Portlandia-esque scene of a PPS meeting (after being served a pair of novelty antique scissors with a piece of pizza at Roman Candle). He may be confused by Portland’s fashion sense, but I don’t think he’ll complain if I share my pickled jalapeños with him.

I’m really fired up about winter squash this year in part because my mom grew the best tasting delicata EVER among other beauties. I spent some time photographing her squash in advance of the Portland Fill your Pantry event on Sunday, December 4. Pre-ordering starts this Wednesday, so if you know what’s good, you’ll buy a bunch of squash, potatoes, and onions from #ovenandearth farm aka Camille’s parents.

I get to look at this mural every day forever and ever, and I am so stoked about that. Manny Arechiga (@goawayfatman ) is an incredibly talented artist. Please click over to his feed to see his beautiful time-lapse video of the whole project (~15 hours in 1 minute). If you ever need a mural painted, I know a guy...

Spying on @goawayfatman as he murals the garage door on the #oldbluerawhoney honey house. #mannyarechiga

We got a couple of fart eggs (tiny, yolk-less eggs laid by young hens) from the girls this morning.

Fun (gross) fact: my hippy parents buried my placenta under this apple tree in 1983. Portland Monthly ( @pomomagazine ) has a pretty good article about these pink apples, ‘Airlie Red Flesh’ aka “Hidden Rose’ or ‘Mountain Rose’.

New signs! Come by for honey tasting this Saturday (10/21) and/or next Saturday (10/28) from noon to 4. We'll have 20+ honey varietals to sample along with coffee and a sweet spread of cheeses and such. Thanks for the sign art, Manny / @goawayfatman ! (Event details linked in my profile.) #oldbluerawhoney #beekeeping #mannyarechiga
The canning books/preserving books I turn to most often (well, except Preservation Pantry cuz it's brand new but will be on heavy rotation this fall).

The grapiest. (Concords will now always remind me of the grape episode of @thenodshow podcast .)

On the drive home from San Francisco, we stopped by our friend Juan's house in Arbuckle to trade a bunch of honey for 50 lbs of almonds. Every time we're in this part of the world (dusty, small, ag-based valley towns), I'm kinda tempted to relocate, but since I've never been here in the summer, I think I might actually have a skewed view of the place. Almond country has a pretty special appeal, though. We had fun salvaging stray almonds out of the husk pile while the kids raced up and down.

Farmers' marketing touristing is the best kind of touristing. Also first time eating a finger lime.
