Got the hives all painted and ready (more on that in another post).
Got the hive area done with landscape timbers, weed block cloth, black mulch and the metal stands in place (will have a post with that too).
|Honeysuckle in bloom|
The smell at the farm was intoxicating...the honeysuckle was everywhere and in full bloom. I hope it stays in bloom long enough for the bees to enjoy! The smell certainly is amazing.
I was able to do some mowing, after a minor tire incident, and it only sprinkled on me once while I was out there. I put everything up, got in the car and it started raining, talk about perfect timing!
Came home to a nice meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes and some fresh baked bread. For those wondering where veggies are, 2nd Man loads the meatloaf up with shredded carrots, onions, minced peppers, celery, parsley, etc, so we still get our veggies with the meal, ha.
I'm in a food coma/sore body state so that's it for now. We're watching the NASCAR race (it's here in Texas tonight). Tomorrow we are up early, 2nd Man's nephew is getting his senior ring and there is a ceremony at the school. Tomorrow is supposed to be a really wet day.
