There’s been a writing spider living on the cucumber plant in our greenhouse since June. I’ve named her Charlotte and look how big & beautiful she has gotten! πŸ’›

Our squash harvest has been abundant so far! I’m so proud of these babies bc they’re my first harvest that I started from seeds in the greenhouse πŸ’š the only struggle is keeping the dang squash bugs away organically 😀 In addition to companion planting I’ve been spraying the plants with a homemade bug repellent and picking the beetles off by hand. So far so good 🌱🀞🌿

Our very first honey harvest! πŸ―πŸπŸ’› We were pretty bummed to find that our first wild hive had moved out but right after we cleaned their boxes and harvested the leftover honey we found a new hive swarming in our front yard and moved them in immediately! .

Ever heard a hen crow like a rooster? πŸ”ŠSOUND ONπŸ”Š
It was quite jarring when Chickiro first made this sound (it kinda sounds like a person wailing) but upon doing research I found out that when no rooster is present the dominant hen will take the lead and bellow out some hearty crows πŸ˜‚ just listen to that crescendo! .
