Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

Spring Has Sprung we are progressing well with our green house plants. Outside the ground is still frozen below 4”. We tried to auger a hole to plant some apple trees Tuesday maybe the end of the week.
The onions and potatoes we hope can be planted next week if the weather stays warm to break up the frost in the ground. Last year we planted radishes on the 29th. At this point all we can do is hope.

The honey Bees have been moved to the outdoors and we check for Queen activities found eggs and Larva good sign.

The Garlic is showing signs of life a ray of hope.

Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm

What do we do when the Bees arrive from the Supplier and winter won’t go away?
Snow most we have had 

3lbs Bees are shipped with food and Queen

Prepare Hives for bees

After Bees are installed Feed

A few Bees got loose

Bring the Hives indoors and put the bees In. However we had some problems installing the Bees the Queen cage fell in the bees and while reaching in they stung me 6 or 8 times, of course my hand swelled  and turned red. I am not allergic so a little allergy medicine, and Hydrocortisone ointment and a few days and its almost good.
Planting in the High Tunnel began yesterday trying some baby carrots, the spinach and arugula will go in april 29th on schedule. However the outdoor planting needs a lot of spring weather we hope for the best.
