The current bush was stunning this year, and the cherry trees loaded as well. It's awesome to see the plants and trees I planted five years ago thriving just in time to move along. The many seeds I've sown are taking good root and baring abundantly. The bee swarms I caught last year survived the winter, sold two in trade for a beautiful topbar hive to move one of my first topbar hived swarms into. That hive has survived many a wind,hail, and rain storm much to my surprise as the lid I made kept blowing off! I've got them moved to the new house, the beegloves I just ordered arrived and I will attempt to move them into their new home perhaps this weekend. I've tucked in a few heirloom tomatoes, basil, an zuchini plants but working with people has taken a priority over the gardening lately.
