Our raised vegetable boxes are finally built and filled. Got some fall crop seeds in and of course we grabbed 12 tomato plants, a few bell pepper plants, and six-pack of cucumber plants.
We’ll see how it goes. It took longer than expected to get them ready, but they look great. Next year we’ll be rocking and rolling for sure!
The last few weeks have been a whirlwind as we prepare for the next two months at the B&B. On the real estate front we have been equally busy closing 7 homes over the last 30 days. We had the absolute pleasure helping this wonderful family sell their former home and buy the next perfect home in Milton, DE. A few months ago one of their girls gave us a beautiful piece that she colored of pink flamingos because it reminded her of the Joe Maggio Realty for sale sign in their yard. It’s so amazing that we get to help families and make new friends at the same time!
Last night we were proud sponsors of pride night at Ryans Mini Golf. Pictured are Joe and David along with two buddies mid way through 18 holes. David won by a stroke! Proceeds benefited Delaware Pride.
We had the pleasure to attend the opening of Mama Mia at Clear Space Theatre Company on Tuesday. It is absolutely amazing and we are so blessed to have such a strong arts community. Hello Dolly opens on Friday and The Wedding Singer rounds out this year’s Summer repertoire opening on July 3. If you’re visiting or a local we highly recommend catching one of these fantastic shows.
We spent a lovely afternoon at the Rehoboth Beach Farmers Market. We picked up some spicy dilly beans for our Sunday Bloody Mary’s from Crisp & Co., a wonderful pickler out of Hockessin, DE. We also nabbed some beautiful heirloom tomatoes for our signature tomato and cucumber salad. The peaches from Bennett Orchards were just insanely delicious so we snagged some of those too for our whole fruits selection at breakfast. We ran into familiar faces from Houston White Co. picking up fresh ingredients for their restaurants. Special thanks to Edward C for Rehoboth Commissioner for sharing the photo he took with us!

Coastal Delaware is celebrating Restaurant Week June 2-7. Participating restaurants are offering 3-course prix fixe menus at $25, $35, or $45. This is probably one of our favorite time of year. The locals benefit from specials during the off-season. However, this week only we get to enjoy wonderful meals at great prices during beautiful weather.

Lee Ann & Tom first stayed at the Homestead B&B in 2018. On that first trip they expressed a desire to move to Delaware. Joe and David listened to their needs and planned several outings to see homes over the course of the last year. Fast forward 10 months later and this wonderful family just closed on their next home. Welcome to Lewes, neighbors!
