Bee Update: Moving Outside

April 12th, 2015

Bee update Dr. Bashioum's garden

The bees have been busy in the garage these last couple weeks pollinating my non-hardy fruit trees, which are just starting to leaf out. The new leaves need sunshine and a drink of water, so this weekend was time to move the tress outside next to the house. They’ll transition there before moving them out to my garden. The bees seemed to have adjusted to the new location for their hive and the mild weather suits the wider range they will have outside. Figs and peaches have already set fruit, so unless we get a bitter cold snap, we should be enjoying some sun-ripened fruit this summer. Our German Shepherd doesn’t know what all the fuss is about, but she is happy to have her garage entrance/exit back open for now.

I ordered my traveling bees from Biobest  for natural Minneapolis garden solutions.

Ice Out Lake Minnetonka

April 1st, 2015

Ice out Lk Mtka 2015

The ice is almost out on Lake Minnetonka. I took this photo while I was standing on the beach at Wayzata Bay across from my office. The mild temps certainly make for a more pleasant run home from work these days. Won’t be long before boats return from their winter storage and the lake returns to busy summer activity.
