Honey Bees and Fruit Trees


20130202-223212.jpg We all drove out to Wimberly in the Roots mobile (aka Jared’s car) to visit Heirloom Blooms, a permaculture community 20 minutes west of us.

They have a beautiful piece of land that they’ve begun to populate well with animals and fruit trees. I hope to visit their place again and work more with them in the future.

They were hosting a bee keeping class. It was a great introduction to the craft and to the complexities of the inner workings of a bee hive. They’re incredible creatures and we couldn’t live without them.


This evening when we got home Lee Wallace came over to help us graft mulberries onto our paper mulberries and Asian persimmons onto our Texas variety. I hope they all take. Thanks to Lee for his knowledge and expertise.
