Happy National CSA Week!!

To celebrate National CSA Week, we'll be listing a reason each day on why we think it's a good idea to join a CSA! 

Reason #1: HEALTH!
We all know it's all about eating your vegetables! But, not all vegetables are created equal. Produce grown in nutrient rich soil without chemical inputs are not only healthier for you, but way better for the environment. A double win. Sign up for your CSA share for your health and the health of the planet!

 

Why We March

The World Marched today... and we joined in the crowds of men, women, children of all ages, creeds, religions, backgrounds. We stand together. We rise to protect this beautiful place we call home. To protect peace, unity, dignity, freedom. 
As Obama said, "this is just the warm up", we continue to march on every day in each choice we make to liberate ourselves, to care for one another, to care for the earth and ALL of our relations.
We are full of HOPE and we are with each of you in our work every day to care for what is worth saving and nurturing. 
Planting seeds of peace.
Inviting you to join...
Together WE ARE!!

All Hail the Queens

We decided to re-Queen a couple of our hives and split a couple more. Ryan bought 4 Queens from Olympic Wilderness Apiaries. They have an incredible Queen rearing program and graft Queens from entirely untreated breeder colonies from Russian and wild survivor stock. He once bought one of their Select Queens whilst still in WA, but gave her to Melissa of Melissabees.com when we were in NM. Apparently the hive is doing incredibly well. 

Transient

Our postmaster was quite worked up when the package from WA marked "LIVE QUEEN BEES" arrived to our little East Wallingford post office. I picked them up while Ryan was at work and gave them drops of water and honey. We prepared the new nucs later that evening. We also performed the royal task of beheading the Queens in the hives that were struggling.
