My garden has changed drastically since last year. We adopted a second lab in July and then unexpectedly found ourselves caring for a Great Pyrenees in the fall. My garden shows the strain of three big dogs so I'm limiting my gardening to my front yard raised beds and my galvanized tub planters this year. And like so much of the country, Memphis had a rough winter and I very sadly lost both of my hives at the beginning of the spring. They both had plenty of food in their feeders, but no honeystores and they did not avail themselves of the feeders. I was devastated by the loss and hope to try again next year, unless a swarm just happens to land in my yard the way they did last year.
On my birthday, in mid-March, it was finally warm enough to plant peas. Everything was still frozen when we usually plant peas and potatoes in February, and my peas are beginning to come in.
