Spring Things

Well, Spring has finally decided to stay here in the Hudson Valley!  We have been busy getting ready for our upcoming season.  The snow plows are off the tractor and Jeep Grand Wagoneer, our rain barrels are re-installed, and things are starting to take shape in the garden.  I've planted some beets, carrots, cabbage, and various lettuces.  I'm hoping by next week to plant onion sets and get some seed potatoes started.  All three of our bee hives are going great guns so we are expecting some honey this year!

The Bee Keeper Reads "The Bee Man".

  Here I am last week reading a book entitled "The Bee Man" to a local classroom of second graders.  I was asked to volunteer my time by Jennifer Fimbel of our local Cornell Cooperative Extension for "National Agriculture Literacy Week" and I gladly obliged.  I had the most wonderful time doing this and I feel the children enjoyed it as well.  They certainly had a lot of questions for me; good ones at that!

Happy Spring!

Well, I haven't written much this past winter but we have slowly been gearing up for another season.  Winter seems to keeping a firm grasp on the Hudson Valley as there is snow still on the ground.
