My bee yard
« on: September 24, 2007, 12:29:32 PM »
Actually, this is my back yard.  Our bees share space with our backyard garden.  Anyways, you can see a BB without a box.  That was the hive to the right where you can see the newspaper hanging out.  I did a combine as that hive was queenless for a while and had a laying worker.

Matt, what kind of set up do you have there?

The white things are called www.hydrostackers.com and the boxes are www.earthbox.com

The plants in the hydrostackers are strawberries.  We will be adding herbs and lettuce soon.

The earthboxes (we have 9) have tomatoes, corn, beans, squash, carrots and peppers.

Thanks.  You are right, we are very happy with it.  We are doing what we can with the small yard that we have.  We greatly increased our garden this fall and just can't wait to harvest.... 

In the past we have done 3 earthboxes for tomatos, peppers and herbs but obviously we have expanded that a good bit.

Matt, you got something good going on over at your place.  I love the strawberry hangers, such innovation on our world, eh?  Have a wonderful day, best of life.  Cindi
