You hate to say this but I think it is very unlikely deer are checking this FB page. We have no, zero, not one bit of deer damage so far this year. Same with the cucumber beetles, did not see a one in the field. These are our two major pests and the deer could show up but so far, so good!
Even better if you use popcorn from friend, neighbor and HRPSO pumpkin grower, Kate Stout, North Creek Community Farm.
Ken travels a lot for his “day job” and people less familiar with the ways of Wisconsin weather will often ask how things are going. As you can see, they are not. Field looks just like it did in December. We are getting into record setting territory for most snow and cold so very late in the season. Spring will come…spring will come…spring…
When the weather warmed up a bit last week, Jay went to inspect the beehive and was very sad to find them all dead. What is happening with the world’s bees? Early reports are indicating this is the worst year ever, possibly up to 35% of the hives in the US have suffered CCD, Colony Collapse Disorder, where the bees either vanish or are found dead. We need bees for their early pollination services and Jay is replacing the hive.
