Moving From the Theoretical to the Concrete

Lughnasa                                            Waxing Back to School Moon Kate has had a nasty cold since Monday and I can feel it trying to claw its way up my esophagus, making my throat scratchy.  My hope is that the recent two time bout I had with some bug in July, then August has revved up my immune system.  […]

Now, my cold […]

Good for the Crops

Beltane                                               Full Planting Moon Much of our garden is a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.  If it doesn’t produce leggy plants that focus on leaves, that should mean increased productivity for the vegetables.  Since we would not have put the honey supers on the parent colony until after the division and since division is […]
