A Wee Update

Today, I harvested some garlic, green beans, and cucumbers. The cucumbers are shaped oddly, but I'm just making pickles, so hopefully they are good for that. The garlic looks like it could've grown for a bit longer, and there weren't many green beans. However, I actually have a picture!

Another good thing happening here is bees! Both colonies from last year failed to thrive. This year we got a new colony, from a different source. This colony came with the honey they will need this winter, meaning anymore they make, we can have. The good news is, for us, that we might actually get honey this year. They've already filled one box and my husband and blessings 3&4 worked together the other day to put together a new box. The bee hive is surrounded by Red Clover and Queen Anne's Lace, with Bee Balm and Purple Loosestrife nearby, along with other flowers I haven't identified yet. Plenty of sources for them to gather from!
