This weekend promises to be a beautiful one. I've been preparing for it since Tuesday, bottling about 450 pounds of honey in 1/2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12 lb jars. The honey right now is full of Aster pollen, as well as hundreds of other plants that have popped up in recent weeks after the rains. It is DELICIOUS!
The bottling was delayed a bit yesterday in preparation for what we did most of the day today. We were asked to set up a fake Farmer's Market booth in Georgetown for an ad agency that chose Round Rock Honey to use in an ad for the US Census. Apparently these ads will be used to show average folks in a variety of settings, ours being a rural one, all finding the time to participate in the census.
