Bees and Garden Again

Tuesday our bees arrived at the post office. Probably tomorrow G will check to see if the queen cage is empty. The first hive is doing well so far.

 Our neighbors took a video of G releasing the bees.

The hummingbirds made their appearance this week. 

 

We got a few more garden beds replaced. I don't think we will ever get it done between the rain and our backs giving out. M1, M2 and L helped us shovel dirt. It is a big help and very much appreciated.We did get one row done and started on the second row. We got a bunch of the grow bags filled.

 

We did the winter sowing this year as an experiment. Several of them didn't do anything, several did just ok but several did so good that we will be doing it again next year. The cabbage, brussel sprouts, dill, cilantro, kale, lettuce, and gillardia did wonderful. We will plant a bunch next winter instead of trying to baby seedlings

 

We are starting our baby watch. Mimi is due in about 2 1/2 weeks. She is a first freshener and starting to get an utter. Hailey is the other doe we think has settled. She is due in 3 weeks.

There will be a farmers market this year. The price of the space has gone up. We decided to do it again but I think this will be the last year.

How was your week?
