We had a great weekend at the Santa Fe Indian Market. We sold lots of our lovely luxury soaps and met tons of cool folks. Sedona is stoked as we finished our set-up on day one !
We've had almost a week in Denver; meeting new customers and making new friends. Thanks to the Rocky Mountain Gift Show, you will be seeing SHIMA' in many more stores and venues. We launched our Spa line of blue corn products this week and everyone loved them.
We checked out the bees this week, to see how they were doing with the changing of the seasons. They seem to be content, and they have plenty of honey for food. Paula and Sedona opened the hives - but it looks as if our new bee suits are a bit oversized for our gals!
The blue corn is as high as an elephant's eye this week at Good Shepherd Mission at 7200 feet above sea level. Good thing, since the night time temperatures in mid-September are dropping into the 30's. The ears are filling out, the silk is drying - but good signs that the corn is close to maturity. We plan to harvest in a couple of weeks - so now, it is a race against time. Which will win? Will it stay warm enough for the corn to finish out to maturity? Or will the night time freezes force us to harvest...
