Last weekend we got the raised beds together and filled. Below are pictures in action. Thusfar we have in starts of: onions, shallots, garlic, potatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower. We can put the Kale seeds in now, just haven't gotten to it yet. :) We will have to wait until April (last frost) to put the rest of the seeds in.
Cleaning out the dead hive was a lot of hard (even gross) labor. Lot of lifting, scraping out wax/propolis, found lots of crawly things living in the dead hive (even mold started to take it over). However, was really interesting. This is a hobby I can really see myself enjoying.
