Spring Awakening Moon
Checked on the bees today. They needed syrup so I put in two pitchers full. They also needed another pollen patty. The colony looks healthy. Lots of bees hard at work. No stings. I have a few things to check on in terms of what I need to do now.
Got all the mechanical detritus out of the soon to be honey house. Next is a good sweeping and a washing, then organizing a table and the rest of the equipment.

General clean up. Getting ready for spring, which has sprung on us with some surprise. Bought the seeds for early stuff and I’ll plant the onions tomorrow morning after I plan the rest of the vegetable garden.
We need rain. If it fits in your faith tradition, please do a rain dance for us up here in Andover.
