The Beekeepers Guild had a potluck event today and we got to get in the hives. Joanna was so excited that her jacket came in! She was a natural, and not at all afraid of the bees.
Abby surprised me, too. She put on a veil and got in to watch the action for a few minutes. But then she was done!
I love these events, as it's always so interesting to talk to the veteran beekeepers. They are very willing to help and share and I can see that it's very easy to get sucked in!
I came home and planted up some of the tomatoes I bought at a plant sale early this morning. I got a Cherokee Purple, an Arkansas Traveler, and an Eva Purple. They are all indeterminates, so now I have to figure out how I am going to trellis them. All the other trellis areas have been taken by the melons and Old Virginia Tomatoes I got in a swap with my Homesteaders League. I also planted two Romas. This is my first attempt at tomatoes, so we'll see how it goes.
