Starting your garden

Spring is here! So to support the pollinators you may want to start planting now. I did a quick video if you are new to gardening and starting seeds. Happy Planting!

Need Bees?

I know that my site has been bare lately. Life has been hectic with regular world. I know that some people have contacted me about getting started.

Here is a local company that I have worked with to get my nucs and packages. SweetGrass Honey is owned by Mick Wiser who has helped me and got me into beekeeping.

You check out the shop link to get bees in April and May 2021. Good luck and Happy Beekeeping, I am getting a few nucs and packages this year myself.

Happy New Bee Year!

Urban Oasis

On a less bee-related topic, it is the second year that my grapevine produced. I am now trying to think of what to do with my bounty.

The next step will be creating a jam/jelly if I don’t eat them all. This year’s garden has been tough on cucumbers. I found one today…

I will add an update on what these grapes turn into if I don’t eat them all.

Bee Safe! Michelle

Sunflowers

Despite the summer heat, this has been a good year for sunflowers. I tried to grow some exotic colors but the seeds that did the best we’re the Mammoth ones that I purchased at the Dollar Tree.

More than 7 ft tall

I love this time of year, so that I can watch the many pollenators in my yard! Enjoy the summer and bee safe!

Summer Gardening

With the summer heat, the weeds have gotten out of control. Here are some photos of our early morning work at Park Heights Community Health Alliance.

In Bloom🌺🌸

It’s almost June and the hard work of the spring is paying off. Here are some shots of my pollinator-friendly plants.

I thought I would start sharing the progress of the garden as well as the bees.

The hive continues to live even though it’s small. The recent pollen should help them to grow over the next few weeks. I will keep posting…

Bee Well,

Michelle
