Bee grove

Everybody seems to be settled in. They're certainly eating a lot! And not just the sugar syrup, either. All day while we were working on our vineyard, we kept seeing bees poking their heads into the weedy little purple flowers that dot our lawn. I also saw a few carrying some kind of odd-looking red pollen.

Meanwhile, we humans have been busy, too. We have trellised up all our grapes and planted the following:

• Two chestnut trees
• 12 Hansen's bush cherries
• 4 elderberry bushes

I hope to get the majority of my vegetable garden planted by the end of the weekend. And we still have a lot of our haul from the Grower's Outlet to deal with!
