I have 2 major projects for the summer that will be garnering most of my attention. One is to stain the porch. Not trivial, as I first need to get some paint stripper and remove the existing paint, then lightly sand, and then stain. That doesn't include the part of the porch that isn't painted but needs some replacement boards before staining. I figure to be doing this all summer, hope to be done by fall.
The other project, which came up all of a sudden, is becoming a beekeeper. There is a bunch of bees in the wellhouse. Originally, I considered just removing them entirely or killing them. Due to some persuasion and other circumstances, I decided to move them from the wellhouse to a hive. Haven't done it yet but taking the first steps of getting equipment, etc. It's also my understanding that land can be ag'd with a certain amount of hives. There's a whole lot to learn but it actually sounds very interesting and fun, plus hopefully get some delicious honey out of it!
I also recently saw a neighbor's above-ground raised garden made with old decking boards and it inspired me, so may try to do at least one raised bed before starting winter planting. His garden was absolutely beautiful and the veggies were plentiful on them.
Anyway, hope your summer is starting out well, it's really been a beautiful spring so far.
