Amidst the chaos that ensues at this busy time of the growing season we have been experiencing a time of many ‘firsts’.
We have our first broody hens for the season.
We have our first baby rabbits.
Whilst making our first thorough inspection of our hives we have sighted one of our queen bees for the first time.
We’ve also had the first bee sting (our intrepid blog photographer), eaten our first snow peas, garlic scapes and broad beans, planted tomatoes and our early potatoes are flowering.
Another milestone is the planting of our first fruit tree on the property, a bosc pear, an impulse buy at the local school fair.
