I've got yellow squash and zucchini. And I've got some tomatoes on the vine but it'll be awhile before they're ready. Also onions and radishes (although the radishes will break your teeth) - they're a little tough.
We're having May showers and it's been hotter. The garden looks good.

We checked all the other hives and put a super on Hive #6 and on the Swarm Hive. So now I have 5 very strong hives. I'll still have plenty of honey and enough for the bees in the winter too. Mr. Ellis is going to do a split on one of his hives so he'll use the queen.

Geese will return to the exact site of the previous years nest each year to mate and nest. Nesting season is mid March to May. The average number of eggs in a nest is 5-6 but there can be as many as 10-12.
Incubation time is 28 – 30 days. The goslings will be able to fly in 2-3 months.
Maybe 10 babies in this little family.
