The summer garden is over, but we have a few flowers still in bloom. The Hydrangeas are gorgeous and we have one lonely Cosmo in the middle of the dried up catnip and goldenrod. There are a few Blackeyed Susans by the blueberry bushes.
The honeybees are really enjoying the Autumn Sage. They're all over the front yard. We plugged the honey supers with wine corks since night temperatures are dropping down to the 40's. Tomorrow we will reduce the supers and add the bottom board and entrance reducers.
We have 10 hens, but only 6 are laying right now. We never got all 10 hens laying on the same day. We have 9 White Leghorns and 1 Americauna. She's the one who won't lay. I'm not sure why. They're pretty finicky, those hens. If they don't have a lot of straw or pine shavings, they won't lay. I hope they will continue to lay throughout the winter. We'll see if they do. I really hate buying eggs and honey. lol
