The weather seems to be getting better and better! That is until we want to work with our honey bees and their hives. Honey bees don’t like cold, cloudy or breezy. Since they keep their hive in the 90 degree range at all times any opening of the hive will chill them a bit. The last couple of weeks while we have been working on them, it seems we have a perfect day, sunny, warm, no breeze and then we open up the hives and suddenly out of no where a gale pops up. Instant angry bees. Thank God for the bee suits is all I can say.
Our full market will be open Saturday and Sunday 10-6. A couple of new items are trickling in each week now. This week along with the greens we have the first of the radishes and turnips In the market:
