Tom and I filled the raised beds with a top-dressing of 'veggie mix' soil from our local Sloat garden center in Danville, in preparation for summer planting.
We watch the drones come home - every day they go out to a 'drone congregation area,' which is a in a secret location, in the hopes of meeting and mating with a queen. They come home about 4 pm, bumbling and loud. It's fun to watch them.
I also visit Annie's Annuals in Richmond, thanks to an unexpected gift card. I was able to get some plants for the shady porch, the pollinator garden where Ginny the chicken eats any seeds I put out, and for the pallet planter which has up until now housed strawberries (they simply need better nutrition than what I can give them in that pallet).
Thanks for watching!
