Today is the last day of Winter. Thank the good Lord! Tomorrow is the first day of Spring. It is very welcomed here. The daffodils have already about bloomed themselves out. Now our orchard is coming alive with some pretty blossoms. The white blossoms above are of our green gage plum tree.
Today was a very pretty day. It was actually hot! So I took some photos of the place.
The above photo is of Ed's new beehive. I painted it for him yesterday. He mixed up some left over paints and this is the color it turned out. Sky blue, isn't it pretty? He will be getting another pkg of bees next month. So he has to have their new home all ready for them. He was given a free hive of bees last month. Those need to be moved into a new hive, but we aren't sure how to accomplish that. As they have made comb in a hive box without foundations. Anyway, after getting the next pkg. of bees that will make 3 hives we have. Hopefully we will be putting up a "local honey for sale" sign next to the eggs for sale sign. : )
This is a photo of my seed starting in my kitchen. There will be lots of peppers, tomatoes and onions, leeks, eggplant and squash, cucumbers, and cole crops in our garden this year. I can't wait until that green house is finished! Speaking of which, here are some photos of the progress being made on it.
