The Sabolds retained the Gardner Gardens name for the skincream and beekeeping operations, and for growing plants. They enjoy having more time for growing garlic and a large community garden. Dave volunteers his time to the Methow Conservancy. Marilyn paints watercolors and does handbuilt pottery. They now get to play and travel more.

* Propolis is a resinous substance collected by worker honey bees from the leaf buds of cottonwood trees in the spring. The bees pack the propolis on their hind legs, and carry it back to their colony, where it is used by worker or "hive" bees as a sealant and sterilant in the colony nest. The antibacterial and antifungal effects of propolis protect the colony against disease.
