Long time, no post. Fortunately, there's been a lot more gardening happening than blogging...at least here.
My bee blog has been getting more attention and because it follows our efforts to create a new bee co-op, also explains the lack of focus here.
Anyway...this season is starting out strong. We have beans, peas, collards, kale, strawberries, squash, basil, tomatoes, onions, garlic, beets, cress, spinach, lovage, poatatoes, artichokes, and more all in and/or producing already.
We're packing something good into every nook and cranny, even building up (hop poles and bean tunnels) and out (into my neighbor's yard) at every opportunity. It's going to be a good year by all signs.
I'm super grateful this season to enjoy some help from a few U of O students who have taken an interest in the garden. They rock! Some are learning about bees, others about gardens, etc. It's really wonderful.
