Bees and Heavy Hearts 

We posted last month about attending bee school with my Dad and how we hoped some day to have our own bees. It’s with a very heavy heart that I’d like to report we now have two hives. After picking up his bees last Saturday, my Dad passed away suddenly on Monday. We were told the bees needed a home. 

Having no equipment, I called Larry Stone from the Audubon Beekeepers Association and explained our situation. Mr. Stone very graciously drove up from Madisonville, loaning us his equipment and installing the bees. We can’t thank him enough for his kindness. 

Although we never expected to get bees this way, we’re going to make the best of the situation. My Dad was a great man. We hope to honor his memory by continuing his beekeeping.

Planting has begun!

It has finally dried out enough to start the greens. I was beginning to wonder if this day was ever going to arrive. Today we start the 2015 garden by planting two varieties of kale, Swiss chard, spinach, turnip, beet, and three types of beet.  It won’t be long before the first deliveries will go out. We can’t wait to visit with our old customers and meet the new!  We’ll contact everyone before the deliveries begin, to hammer out the details. 

Buds on the trees. Spring is an awesome thing 🙂
