Golden Week adventure

It has been an incredibly eventful few weeks for me, and I am still trying to get caught up.

I had quite a lot of house work and yard work and other things to catch up on after my vacation. The garden needed tending, and I spent some time replanting a few things that either hadn't sprouted or had gotten damaged after sprouting. The weeds in some areas of the yard are out of control, but I would need a solid 2-3 days to clear them up, and I have too many other items on the agenda to devote that much time to weeding.

I added another box to my hive, filled with frames that the bees can use to store honey. They haven't started using it yet (it's still pretty early in the season, and they're concentrating on raising more baby bees), but eventually it will be their winter food storage.

One of these days, I will actually start unpacking...
