Mummies swept to the middle
Mummy removal has been a major activity over the last 6 weeks when the weather has allowed. After being put on the ground we sweep the mummies to the middles so they can be chopped up by the mower.

In this block we are only mowing every other middle. This preserves some forage for the bees that are being placed in the orchard. Although it just looks green, within the vegetation is blooming chickweed and shepherds purse.

We want to do all we can to have healthy bees!
