Bees and Trucks

Last year we started the season with two bee hives.  Sadly one died, but the other thrived.  We decided to leave the honey in the hive hoping the bees would survive the winter.  We checked them last week and they are very much alive!  Below is the hive.

This picture shows us feeding them some sugar to get them through to spring, when everything starts blooming and they can feed themselves again.

And, in other news the farm has a new dump truck.  We had a regular pickup that we sold because we thought we could get more use out of a dump box.  This one was scored on Craigslist for a pretty good deal.  It has a hitch so it can pull just about anything, plus we can haul just about anything...manure, compost, wood chips, mulch, rock for driveways and landscaping materials.  It has been well taken care of and looks good for a 1981 model.  That makes it vintage, right?
