Terry and I wanted to get some mowing done yesterday and figured we would wait until the late afternoon or early evening to get started, when it had cooled down a bit. That’s the great thing about this time of year, it stays light longer. I figured that in the meantime I would do some […]

In a blog post titled Books And Bees 10 days ago, I wrote that we had mowed our lawns and most of the main pasture, leaving the area where Terry’s fruit trees are untouched because it was full of clover that the bees were happily enjoying. I also left the back pasture behind the barn […]
