Spring has finally decided to show up in Charlotte! Wahoo! I love this time of year and am anxious to see full trees with new green leaves all over town. Unfortunately, I have apparently developed some allergy problems so being outside is a bit less enjoyable than I would like. Zach has been battling allergy problems for years and recently we have turned to nature to help with this problem.
Rumor has it that eating local honey (produced within 7 miles of your home) can help alleviate allergy problems. Last week Zach and I found a local beekeeper right here in Charlotte, about 5 miles from our home in the Myers Park/Elizabeth area. We had a lovely time with Libby, the beekeeper, and taste-testing their available products and flavors. I also recently watched the documentary, Vanishing of the Bees, and it was so fascinating! I'm all about some beekeeping now. Ha!
Backyard Produce that delivers in our area. Has anyone ever used them before?
I also have decided to create a herb wall garden on a side wall in our dining room. Since I'm not totally awesome with plants, I figure this will be a relatively simple way to have fresh herbs at home year-round. This is a small, experimental step towards my dream of having a spectacular vertical wall garden in my dream home someday (designed by the incredible Patrick Blanc of course).
these. I love supporting local businesses and products so if anyone has any other resources let me know!
