A Honey of a Great Giveaway




I thought it was time to give a shout out for the hard working BEES! Even though I am very allergic to their sting, I feel they are such a blessing and have been doing all the work without any glory. So I will be offering this wonderful stamp and ink set as my humble bumble way to stand up and say "We owe you everything - Bee Mine".

Here is the instructions for getting in on this giveaway - Just leave a comment here under this entry with your favorite fruit or veggie that would not be on the planet if it were not for the hard working bees...

Next, if you would not mine checking out www.helpthehoneybees.com from Haagen-Dazs - a great site to inform and assistance with getting bees a safer life as they work so hard for us.

So there is the BUZZ about this giveaway - It starts today Friday June 18th and runs thru Thursday June 24th at midnight MST. Don't forget to give me a way to contact you. So get the BUZZ OUT and leave your entry!

Hi Grace,
After picking 20 lbs of strawberries yesterday, I'd have to say that blueberries are definately my favorite. So healthy, delicious and versatile. Praise God for the humble bee! They were created so perfectly...except for those darn stingers....OUCH!

I would definitely have to say peaches. They are something everyone here in the garden state looks forward every year. And the peach blossoms are so sweet how could a bee resist!
What a wonderful and generous giveaway! Would love to be included.

I would have to say apples. Without those yummy little fruits, I wouldn't be able to make my pies that my boys like so much. Thanks for doing this great giveaway!

Avocados....in the orchard where I live. Our beehives provide the pollinators for our four acres of trees...and when the bees are busy in the avocado flowers, we can hear them buzzing in B flat!

I am an aspiring beekeeper, and love the hagendaz website. When we move to our adobe near Taos, NM, I hope to find a beekeeper coop to learn the skills required. I love bees.

I too love the hone bee, bu my husband is also VERY allergic. We have about 25 fruit trees on our property so I would have to say that pears and apples are my favorite thing that the bees help us with!

Grace, these stamps are so neat and I always think about the girls posting all they are doing and (busy as bees.)
Grace, I can not name just one fruit that the little bees make possible for me. Here on the Spinning C we start with strawberries in the Spring, then plums, cherrys, peaches, apricots, blueberrys, rasberrys, and we finish our summer season with watermelon and apples. We start watching for the bees early in the Spring.
Have a wonderful Day Grace!

Hi Grace -

I'd love to win these stamps - my boyfriend and I have 9 bee hives that are very active right now. I love all kinds of fruit, but I guess apples would have to be my favorite!

Thanks for doing this contest for us!

What a great contest. I never realized how much bees did for a garden until we bought a house that "came" with four bee hives. The garden and fruit trees were magnificent. From apples and pears to hazlenuts and tomatoes, everything went crazy with the bees. I wasn't the best bee keeper and we never did get much honey. But my oh my, did that garden flourish.

I'll say the zucchini... it is so versatile. You can do so many things with it. Last year I made a dill/zucchini relish that was fabulous. My husband eats it on everything. Ingredients? Grated zucchini and lots of fresh dill!!

Marjean said...

We finally got my garden going this year. I planted every kind of squash that I love. Butternut, acorn, spaghetti, zuchini and in th potato family sweet are my fav. I can't eat tomoato so I use the squash on my pasta and sometime add cheese with it. Yummy! God made the perfect growing system for sure!

Brenda said...

How can I choose? I think tomatoes and cherries are my favorites today, but how could I live without apples, peaches, pears, berries, squash, etc.?
