Spring seems to be here finally. I’ve been out and about enjoying the season. Mushrooms are popping up and I have found two batches, enough for dinner each night. Turkeys are gobbling but that season opens up mid next week and I thankfully have a week of vacation to enjoy it. I’ve also been transplanting a bunch of trees at the woods to create a screen and increase some habitat. its a lot of work but very satisfying.
I was able to get some fishing in these last two days. First showing a friend how to fly cast and in the process caught a couple of small Blue Gills. Today I tromped through a river with a friend and caught nothing but still enjoyed the time out. While in the river we heard a tremendous crash of a rotten tree. When finished and drove back to the spot where I had left my truck we came across the tree. It was completely blocking the road. Lucky for us it was rotten so pretty light. Our only trouble was a couple of dazed squirrels who refused to leave their now destroyed house.
My Bees are out and moving. I had two hives going into the winter and one survived and it is going pretty strong so hopefully I’ll be able to get a little bit of honey off of them. But it depends on the weather and spring honey flow.
