Such happenings on the homestead these days!
As you know, we were hoping to get bees this year. Yesterday, I finally took the steps to email a company in southern Vermont who sells bees and bee equipment. They are a solid 3+ hours away, but well worth the travels I think. As long as we get our names on the list, we can reserve a bundle of bees for pick up in May. Something tells me we will be taking the truck for that trip ;).
On other news, we are seriously considering installing a wood burning fireplace in the homestead. Currently, we do not have any secondary heating source, but if we ever want to begin to step away from even part of the grid, we will have to start somewhere. And, with our forested land across town, we should have plenty of food for the fire. I am very excited, as I envision cosy warm nights, crocheting by the light of the flame.
Big happening down on the homestead!
