Spring: Farm

 Garden Musings: A Roundup: March 13, 2012 

I've decided that I'm going to start sharing a periodic update on our gardening adventures.  We are growing gardeners, with much more enthusiasm then experience, so these posts are likely to contain a good deal of mistakes and a few successes.

Oooh... We are getting so excited to welcome the newest arrivals to our home - or all 10,000 new arrivals, give or take a few.




Childrens' Garden

Our children's' garden (or more correctly, F-H-F Land) is starting to take shape.  A few months ago (see here), we started dreaming of an outdoor space that would excite the imagination of our little ones; an area that would connect little hands to nature; and an area that was (almost) all their own.


Cold Day at the Farm

Last week we spent a day volunteering at a farm that supplies fresh food to the local food bank.





Bees

This past Friday our package of bees arrived!

Despite a warmer then average spring, Friday here was not only cold but blustery.




Garden Musings: Roots

For so many years, Dave and I were nomadic people.  We worked onboard tall ships running educational/science programs







. Garden Musings: June 7, 2012

I seem to have a few problems at this time of year in the garden.  First, I always plant things too early because, well, I just get excited and can't help myself.



Garden Musings: May 22, 2012

 Hopefully we've passed our final frost this year, and we've been busily getting.seeds planted and seedlings in the ground.






Bee Update

Turns out the bees really love chive flowers.  When we first got the bees, we expected to see them around the yard visiting the flowers, but they seemed to be flying off over the tree and into the woods (possibly to visit the honeysuckle there, or a a neighboring field).
