Its 70 degrees!

Garlic is up in full force as the picture shows and lettuce, spinach, cilantro, and more that overwintered at Garden Dreams is full grown and hiding under row cover to beat the heat!

This weekend it was in the 70s and I was able to look in on our two beehives. Spotted the queen in Hive A as we call it, waddling around doing her thing and lots of healthy brood and young bees to prove she has been hard at work. I didn't see the queen in Hive B, but saw plenty of proof that she was hard at work as well. Both hives are bringing in orange, yellow, and green pollen from maple, weeds, and whatever else they can find that is blooming. And boy are they finding I watched them this morning they were bringing in huge loads. Very cool.
