Letter From Jason | Proprietor

 

Dear Honey Run Guests,

I’ve been to the Mountaintop; But If Not; I have a Dream; these are just a few examples of the work and influence of Martin Luther King Jr. I have traveled to Montgomery Alabama and toured the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church and the Rosa Parks museum. These two sites educate and inspire while breaking your heart in bewilderment as to how man can mistreat his brother in such horrific acts. As a white northern suburban male I have heard about the civil rights movement and I certainly have watched countless leaders opine on the television about how the minority is mistreated, but there is no personal connection for me. I have never experienced racism first hand. I do not know what it is like to be judged solely by the color of my skin. Even with these exposures I was not motivated to delve deeper into the understanding of the movement. Then in January 2009 I found myself on a mission trip to Uganda and being separated from the group I traveled on my own with a couple of local guides. We stopped at a store to pick up supplies and I realized I was the only white person in the vicinity and suddenly I was aware of what it feels like to be watched. Everyone on the street and in the store stared at me and watched my every movement. The difference being they were looking at me because I was different not in a suspect manner. This gave me a glimpse of understanding of what our African American citizens face daily in America. What I can’t relate to is the hatred that so many bigoted people exude......Click here to continue reading Jason's letter

The Inn at Honey Run is renowned for its natural beauty. Most of our guests experience the Inn in the summer and fall and remember the woods and fields in all of their technicolor glory and serenity. I would propose, however, that winter is the season that is most serene. I remember my first winter at Honey Run, 4 years ago.  The entire property reminded me of European inns that I had been to in years’ past.  The Inn had an almost Scandinavian quality about it.  I really am not a fan of the cold; I’m from below the Mason-Dixon Line. I realized that the icy scenery was calming in its starkness. The white blank canvas the snow created took away the clutter and left a clean slate full of possibilities...Click here to continue reading and view Chef's featured recipe!

Here in Ohio, snow is blanketing the ground and bitter temperatures hurt your skin. January is a great month to stay in dreaming and planning of garden additions and changes to be made. Below is a list of garden related chores for the month of January.
  •  Wash Houseplants
Wash the dust off houseplant leaves. In addition to plants better gathering more light, this is also beneficial in removing any pest populations inhabiting the leaves. I use warm water, no soap. If using soap, Ivory is best, mixed at a solution of one teaspoon to a quart of water...Click here for more great winter gardening tips!
