Have a wonderful weekend, friends! We will be staying home with our sweet pup who can’t handle the fireworks with our annual 4th of July pho bed-in. I’ll also be sprucing up the garden and GETTING THE HOUSE READY FOR MY IN-LAWS. They’re so kind, but I’m a nutter about getting the house looking pretty for visitors. Hopefully, I’ll get to cook up some yummy stuff with our beautiful farm share … aaannd drink all the rosé. See ya next week! xo Jen

WHAT WE GET:
For our household of two, my husband and I had got the Small Share (for 20 weeks), the Fruit Share (for 15 weeks), and the Cheese Share (for 8 weeks) this year. We’ve had the Flower Share (for 12 weeks) in the past which is AMAZING, but I planted so many more roses and other flowers this year that I pulled back. I’m still not sure that was a great decision as I’m looking at photos of the stunning Helsing Junction bouquets I got last year. It’s so worth it and the flowers looked beautiful for 10 days or more — which is crazy. If you enjoy eating out a few times a week, you might occasionally have times where you need to come up with a recipe game plan for freezing or do some fun trades with neighbors, co-workers and friends. Luckily, HJF has a wonderful recipe index and there are LOTS of share choices available!
SHARE OPTIONS: MINI SHARE • SMALL SHARE • LARGE SHARE • HEALING SHARE • PALEO SHARE • SNACK SHARE • JUICE SHARE • FLOWER SHARE • BULK SHARE • STORAGE SHARE • CANNING SHARE • CHEF SHARE • FRUIT SHARE • CHICKEN SHARE • SAUERKRAUT SHARE • YOGURT SHARE • HANDCRAFTED CHEESE SHARE • MORE INFO
A SWEET DEAL: Get 5% off your Mini, Small, Large or Paleo farm share at Helsing Junction Farm with code FARMDIRECT16 for a limited time. 2016 SIGN UP + DELIVERY OPTIONS.
DELIVERY AREA: Here is the big Helsing Junction Farm list of Oregon and Washington drop-off sites and delivery locations.
DRAWING: This giveaway ends Wednesday, May 18, at 2PM PST. The winner will be chosen at random and I’ll update this post with the name within a few days.

Hi again! Here are more popular Honey Kennedy posts rounded up from 2015 — April, May and June. I also love revisiting these lovelies because I start thinking about what I might find just around the corner — and, frankly, I get pretty excited for spring. Thanks for coming to this space to hang with me! It’s cool to share so many interests with you and it means so much to me to hear from you. HAPPIEST NEW YEAR! ♥ Jen xx
HAPPIEST FRIDAY, friends! I’m excited to go antiquing with my friend Sarai this weekend. Fingers crossed — we hope to find those elusive pieces of furniture to pull our homes and offices together. We’re going to have a yummy Vietnamese lunch at a favorite spot as well! I’ll also be doing more cooking and baking. This white bean and kale soup recipe was so good that I look forward to making another double batch (I used Italian seasoned seitan instead of sausage if you’re veg too). And I’m going to wing it and make some apple hand pies with cardamom and orange blossom water and maybe some apple cheddar ones! I think watching some horror movies in a 1920s cobra outfit might be in order, too. Have a wonderful weekend! xo Jen ♥

I LOVE roses for their beauty, scent and flavor, so I was excited to see this DIY Rose Petal Ice Cubes tutorial using Cardinal de Richelieu garden roses. I just need to figure out if my garden roses are safe to use. I imagine they’re probably fine because I don’t think the plants were ever grown with pesticides. A rose with smaller blooms than I currently grow would be easier to use to make this work, so I might try it with dried rosebuds and petals first. I also love that the classic sturdy steel ice cube trays are still available and that you can even get an ice cube tray stand to conserve space and hold up to three trays. These trays would be a nice gift for a classic cocktail enthusiast or anyone who loves those little vintage details. This Rose Petal Honey recipe looks great too! Rose everything, please.
