Feed The Bees

Been having some very lovely weather here and I am very happy indeed.  Wonder about the summer though when we are about on the average 15 degrees higher then normal everyday this winter expect the days we had the hard freeze.

I am going to start putting out some food for hummingbirds and the bees.  Tomorrow should be a good day for that.  I saw an article on facebook were stores have been send excess sugar to feed the bees don’t know how true that is but it sparked an idea in my head anyway.  One good way to help keep my little attempts at good earth keeping and build my little eco system I am trying to develop in my yard.  I am going to try a mixture of brown sugar and water of course for the hummingbirds I have their nectar all selected for them.

My berries are putting on new growth and I hope to get some this year.  I have some raspberries (2 types) and blackberries.  A few strawberry plants have survived to and I am going to work on their soil tomorrow.  Adding some cow fertilizer and breaking up the soil around the plants, being careful not to mess with the roots.
