I've added a young hive to the arsenal, and hopefully it will help the garden and all the flowering trees and buds around the farm. They seem to be settling in, and working hard to get their new home furnished with comb as fast as possible. They are directly next to a giant honeysuckle bush so the drive for take out isn't too far. They don't seem to both anyone else: not the sheep, me, or Jasper. I am hoping to order him a proper harness soon so we can move from lead line training around the pasture to actual harness work, light and simple. But our time together is proving good and I'm comfortable with the pony faster than I expected to be.
Okay, off to plant those taters. Anyone want to guess how many I'll actually get in the ground? Whoever gets the closet will get a giveaway prize: a signed copy of Made From Scratch with a chicken feather bookmark. So let's hear those chance guesses!
P.S. I have laying hen chicks for sale if anyone local wants some. Five dollars each: Ameraucanas, Buff Orps, and Rhode Island Reds.
