Aug 29 – I bought local honey at the farmers’ market.  I wish I had bought more than a pint.  The beekeeper has an herb garden and this honey is light and delicious with slight herbally overtones.  A couple weeks later I bought some later season honey that is mostly ragweed, and it’s much more strongly flavored.  I use this herb honey in tea and the stronger stuff in cooking.  Next year I hope to be featuring my own honey.  And I know to collect some before the ragweed starts blooming.
