Under Cover

I’m pleased with our cover crops this spring.

OurĀ fall-sowed gardens have a thick beautiful cover now, dominated by crimson clover.

Not only does the clover enrich the soil, the honeybees love it too.

Yesterday I checked ourĀ hive and was pleased to find that the girls are well on their way to filling the first super. I added another to give them room for more, happy to know that we should be able to extract honey this year, for the first time in several years.
