Yesterday, for the first time, we blogged for a different online venue. Mother Earth News and Grit operate a contributor-run blog called "Keeping Backyard Bees". And for our first installment, we wrote about procrastination and getting behind before we even get started.
Here's the first paragraph (you can read the rest here):
The outside world thinks that a farmer or beekeeper’s season starts when the flowers begin to bloom or the last frost passes. Where we live, that last frost date is right around tax day in mid-April, but really a beekeeper’s “Spring” begins when that first flower blossoms (early to mid-February for us). It is not uncommon for someone to walk up to us and make the statement, “Well, you guys have nothing to do until Spring, right?” Yup. Nothin’ to do…Ha!
