Here are the two unfinished beds, with a dog hovering...they are being tortured by the dog food in the beds. Amusing to watch them try very hard to get their muzzles through the fence and into the straw.
The finished (for now) bed is seen here on the right. I will need to top it off with quite a few inches of soil before planting. My Wintersown tomatoes can be seen in the background inside a frame, the jugs are in bags for an extra layer of protection. There has been no sprouting yet which seems odd since it has been very warm here. I am afraid the little seeds got jumbled around and are too deep or something. It is very tempting to break in there and dig around, I may just have to today.
I also need to turn my coldframe around at some point, it is facing the wrong direction, and now that the fence has been expanded it can face the proper direction for maximum sun exposure and be opened!
I saw on another MA blogger's post yesterday that the honeybees were out. It seems too early, but sure enough, they were buzzing around my crocuses as well. No bumbles though- and they are usually the early arrivals.
This other little fella was hovering around as well, not sure what kind of bee it is. But seriously, where are the big bumbles?
