    I took this picture inside a hive today. Still feeding them once a day. They are just starting to collect pollen.

    Caveman and I just got two of the three thousand baby blueberry plants in the ground. I created a nursery with six rows and about 325 plants per row. These will be dug up later in the year and planted in the back field. Now onto the remaining thousand that will be permanently planted by the Crop Mob!

    The Buckeye Tractor bed shaper is getting configured to make raised beds in a single pass. My mantra today is tweak and test, tweak and test...

    Ana and I unpacked the top bar hives and added six Carniolan bee colonies (18 pounds of fuzzy buzz). Next, blueberry honey!

    We're using a tractor attachment called a 'bed shaper' to create 5" raised beds throughout the farm. Some will be planted with blueberries and others with row crops.

    Middle busters are deep (15 inches plus) furrowing plows used to open up the deeper soil for roots and drainage prior to tilling.

    We have over 1,200 plants started inside in preparation for spring planting. We're using soil blocks, heat mats, and grow lights to keep the young plants happy while we get the fields ready. We also have heirloom apples, cherries, and raspberries.
