I just had to share with you a photo of one of our new hens. I have named her "Skidmark." I'll let you figure that one out ... (click on the title of this post and then on the photo to enlarge).
If you have friends with gardens, chances are that you also have friends with chickens ... or you may have them yourself! Show them off on this website!
Share with other gardeners, and maintain photo galleries to share with your friends. Learn from others in habitat zones similar to your own.
Did you know that you can eat the flowers from your chive plants? I know, I know ... you're probably thinking: eat flowers?
As someone posted here a week or so ago, I love the Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed lettuce! It's fun to grow, fun to say and good to eat! Here's a photo of the lettuce as it looks now ... I've already been harvesting it!
My wife took this awesome photo of our back yard today. As you can see - everything is in bloom. We are so blessed to live here in all this beauty! Our friends call our property 'Paradise,' and for good reason.
I know one of the authors of this website is fond of the Drunken Woman Frizzy Headed lettuce, so I decided to give it a try. Looks good so far! I bought mine from Territorial Seed ... not sure where else you can get it.
During my hive inspection yesterday, I pulled out the plywood beneath the screened bottom board on Hive A and saw ... a whole bunch of varrao mites! Some alive, most dead. How could this be? I hived the package only three weeks ago.
For the most part, I do almost everything related to fruit and vegetable plants here at the greenhouse, while my wife does all things having to do with flowers and flowering shrubs.
Here is a short time lapse video showing the installation of two packages into our honeybee hives. This is not intended as a tutorial, just a "bird's eye view" for someone wondering what the process looks like start to finish. :)
Saturday, April 22, 2017, I hived two packages of Italian bees from Stedman's Bee Supplies in Silverdale, Washington. This will be my second season as a beekeeper.
