They’re Alive!

We’ve had a little warm spell here over the past few days, which enabled us to check on a few things.  I planted some carrots in an outside raised bed (not one in the greenhouse) late July as an experiment.  We had carrot tops before our hard frost which died off then the ground froze.  Frozen ground kept us from digging around to see if we had any carrots underneath the soil.  I’m happy to say the answer is yes!  Also, we had a chance to check on our bees.  Our bees didn’t survive our harsh winter last year but this year, so far, they appear to be thriving.  The warm day encouraged them to step out for a bit to check for pollen.  Not yet little guys, give it a few more months.  We ordered another colony last night, expanding our tiny honey operation.  Eventually these bees need to pay for themselves!
