Started this year. What a great little hobby to prep me for the new beekeeping season. Even though this spring wasn't great for sap flow I still enjoyed it.
Can't wait until next February!
Oh, of course I also enjoy the great outdoors. Golf, fishing, kayaking in the summer, snowshoeing, xc skiing, and of course downhill skiing in the winter. While at home I keep a veggie garden (my original reason for keeping bees) and driving around on my tractor!
Yeah, I know what you mean. Since I started beekeeping, I've barely touched my bike. Only had it out a few times this spring/summer so far... plus, I dumped a good chunk of my hobby money into bee stuff, so I can't afford to do much to any of my bikes....
I grow giant pumpkins, and farm alpacas. I am growing my pumpkins this year where our alpacas are boarded. We work out there a lot so we only have to pay for feed. As well as my pumpkins we are having a HUGE garden with our alpaca farmer friend that we put the tranplants in last night so there is now-
61 tomatoes plants (10 ish varities)
At the very least that many pepper plants (12 or 14 varities)
25 squash plants of different kinds
10 or 12 catinlope plants
a few eggs plant
a few cabbage
a few rubarb
we still have to plant from seed=
the list goes on
