|The hops plant came back! And it's already as big as it got last year! Hopefully it will help the bees battle varroa, although we don't have too strong of hopes that the bees will self-treat.|
|One nice thing about all this rain is that it's made it really easy to pull weeds. The strawberries needed it bad, and we happily removed all the quack grass in there.|
|We did take the risk of turning over a couple beds to get the onions and sweet potatoes planted since they really needed to get in the ground. Hope they do ok!|
|Some of the first wildflowers (not including dandelions) are also starting to bloom. These guys are in with some roses that are looking a little deficient in iron or nitrogen. We haven't seen any bees on these blooms yet...|
|...but they are working on the chives that got ahead of us! This little gal was so into it, she started probing the next flower while she was still standing on the first one! Good work, ladies.|
What made you happy this week?
