SPRING



This time of year we yearn to be gardening and feel the soil around our hands and the sun on our faces. But remember that the leaf litter carries this years pollinators and butterflies. By removing leaf litter, and disposing of it, you are disposing of this years pollinators. Be patient, my rule of thumb is, ‘ When the dandelions start to bloom, we can start tidying up our gardens.’

Usually by the time the dandelions start to bloom, the weeds try to take over. Here is an organic spray recipe for unwanted garden plants.

WEED BE GONE – never buy Roundup again!

1 gallon vinegar

2 cups Epsom salt

1/4 cup Dawn dish soap (the blue original)

Happy gardening



BEE CITY CERTIFIED

This was the perfect fit for us. We are a pesticide free honey producer and support the bees and pollinators by growing needed plants through our organic nursery. It is an integrated business where the nursery provides the much needed native, organic plants for the needs of the bees and the bees provide the pollination services for the nursery to continue.

When we discovered about Bee City, it sounded like a wonderful opportunity. We are so glad to be part of the Bee City family.
