Springtime Delights

Farmers market haul from last weekend: Sea Beans, Ramps, and Nettles.
Dish with baked ramps, orzo, and a poached egg. I'm still dreaming about it.
I've been on something of a bag shopping spree lately. Here are all the bags and pouches I've collected over the past few months. I looove my Baggus, I can't believe it took me so long to get a few, they're so useful and attractive.
The bluebells are fading now but they were wonderful while they lasted

I think this is kind of neat;  Bee Local honey uses honey collected from beehives located in different neighborhoods in Portland. There is a Mt. Tabor one, a Lauralhurst one, etc. Supposedly they all have their own character. I love that idea. I'd like to try the Mt. Tabor honey since that's near where I used to live and I'm fond of the neighborhood.


  1. The other great thing about local honey is that apparently eating it helps to cut down hayfever in that area. IE if you get hayfever at home and eat honey from near where you live, apparently you build up a natural immunity to local pollens. Nature is genius!

  2. Glad you like the idea of Bee Local! The honey is truly completely different depending on what neighborhood it is from. It's amazing.

    I am out of Mt. Tabor however I still have Powellhurst available. It can be found at Salt & Straw on Alberta.

    Later in the summer there will be many more varieties available so keep an eye out for it.

    Thank you for talking about Bee Local on your blog.

  3. I need to start going to my local farmers market again! lovely post

    Beautiful bluebells! <3
