Finally we start getting some heat and then BAM! it rains like crazy, a blustery midwest type storm rolls in and drizzles on our parade. But right before it did, I observed 4 different types of bees sucking on nectar on our overgrown collard greens. It was a great chance for a discussion on pollination. It was also a reminder of the coming of summer, as we constructed a beanpole teepee from bamboo that came from a friend’s yard- kids will be able to play in it- how fun!
The beginning of summer?
