I’m elated to say that this week is my last week of school and from here on out I will be busy taking on all this homesteading!
I’ll start with my beekeeping fun. All the hives seem to be doing well and are laying lots of eggs. The newest swarm that I got has been really busy laying eggs! Great job on picking that queen!
When we pulled the hive out of the tree being cut down, we put some frames of their brood in there to help get them started and attached them to the frame with rubber bands. Well, they showed me how much they liked those bands!
The mister has a friend that has a ton of bamboo growing in their yard. That stuff is so invasive and grows too fast! But, they let us cut some for free to turn into tomato stakes and a green bean teepee!
Around the homestead we have been gathering lots of eggs and some delicious strawberries!
The mycelium from the winecap mushrooms are really enjoying this wet weather!
I was also given a fixer upper kind of project by a friend! Her camera strap was looking sad and needed recovered! So, 30 minutes later, I had removed the old fabric and made it pretty again!
The solar panels did great last month!! Our bill was for only $8.16 and we even got a credit back for over $80 from previous months!
So that’s a quick update here on our tiny plot of land in the middle of a small town!
