Backyard Bees is a local Orange County company that lets people adopt a hive and keep it in their backyard, but maintains it for free. You get 10% of the honey, pollinators for your garden, and you get to help save the bees!
It's already time to harvest the red potatoes! These were the potatoes that I planted in the fabric pots a couple months ago. Each of these pots got two seed potatoes. They gave me a nice return of an average of 5 potatoes per pot.
