Miraculously it looks like we might have finished our new wood shed today - complete with paint! Even more miraculously it looks like one of the three sections of our new wood shed is going to be not only a place for the kids to park their bikes, but also a place for me to park my vegetables like potatoes, pumpkins, and hang my onions. I bypassed my husband and consulted his uncle when he arrived to help this morning as I know he is more open to new ideas than my husband. Before I blinked he had built a couple of shelves and a rail to hang the onions. Now all we need to do is shift all the wood into the shed.... I think that will take longer to do than the actual building did!
In other news... we were given two swarms of bees from a friend last week and although one hive is still humming the first bees decided they either didn't like their new box or their new location and have taken off - leaving just the very start of their honey comb and no honey. Apparently their is a big shortage of bees in Japan at the moment so I hope we can at least keep one hive going to help restore the balance of nature - and pollinate my veges at the same time!
