    Bay,

    I hope you can have bees one day. I find working with them extremely rewarding and satisfying. Most important of all, America is in desperate need of bees right now...

    For us, we are gambling that our significant investment in bees will also eventually pay off. Just hope it works out...we are in fairly deep now.

    We too planted the crimson clover.

    Here's a pic:

    We are hoping it pays off...the crimson clover seed is expensive so we will try our hand at harvesting the seed when it is ready...

    Our fava beans are in full harvest and bloom mode all at once:

    Yes, kinda gettin a little burned out on all the work...trying to adjust to give myself enough rest...

    Have a good one everyone!

    I thought fava beans were vines. They are, almost over your head! Your Crimson clover looks beautiful too. Yeah, seed is expensive, but we have a seed company in Tyler and can go get it, thus saving the shipping charges.
