Our beekeeper. Can you believe they do it with their bare hands!? Not a job I would want :)

The wheat is growing.

Here we are getting the field ready to plant spinach seed. There was a grass field here last year so we have to plow it to get all the sod out of the way.
We are growing it not for the spinach leaves itself, but the spinach seed. This is our first year doing this so we are learning a lot. Who knew that you had to plant female spinach seed, then a week later in between the female rows you have to plant male spinach seed. Then a week after that you have to plant another round of male seed.
This afternoon, since the weather is finally nice, we are planting our cabbage seed...also grown for the purposes of making more seed.
