This Tuesday the bees from the roof were very active. Jonathon Otis (Lake Superior Honey Co.), who raises them on our roof, came over and said there was one hive with no queen – that is why the were swarming in the VIP Pizza parking lot. He and our Maintenance man Peter wrangled them back into a hive and returned them to the roof. It was quite a sight.
Rita and Abby have been doing a FANTASTIC job this summer with the garden. This is really the first time in our twelve year history when our garden goals have been realized. We are getting some great produce from all three of our plots – greens, herbs and fennel are currently on the menu. Blue potatoes and spinach are among the things to come.
