Look what I got out of the garden yesterday ... and there are more to come! I've been waiting a long time for this ... the season's first cole slaw.
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.
And no shortage of weeds, either. Here you can see three photos that show how I spent my July 4th weekend ... Friday, the Crop Circle garden was covered in weeds up to eight inches tall.
Holy cow, some of the leaves are approaching three feet wide! The stalks are two feet in length and a delicious shade of red.
They are like garlic candy canes!!! Oh, the bliss!!!
Wow, the bees are healthy and thriving! They are also getting a little more protective of their domain. But I do have to admit that I got careless and did a few things in a hurry that were not well thought out ...
My beehive is strong! I peeked inside today and you can see that they are busy as bees, making honey and love from nectar! I love this hobby!!!
Lately, I have been fermenting LOTS of hot sauce and producing very tasty, very HOT batches! I started this one today - a half gallon ferment of Hatch chilis, Arbot chilis, garlic and a few jalapenos...
This is week 7 with the new hive of honeybees. They are doing extremely well. I added a second deep super several weeks ago but on inspection last week, they hadn't moved into it. There was a lot of burr comb between the supers, though.
I conducted my third hive inspection. Everything looks ship-shape and the first ba-bees have emerged from their wax cells to begin their lives as workers. Can you spot the Queen bee in this photo?
In this video, I open the beehive for the second hive inspection and also look for my queen bee.
