A tilling day.

Expanded the bee garden. It's about 1/3 bigger now. Got it all tilled up and about 6 yards of compost spread and worked in. Also picked up seeds today and 3 pounds of yellow sweet clover. I have 5 pounds of Ladrino, White, and Alsike clover that's going on the yard and grass areas in the fields. I'll also mix a tiny bit of each in the mix below. Hoping that the weather stays dry tomorrow so I can plant it. Wanted to this evening but it was a bit too clumpy for my liking. I'll put up some pics tomorrow of everything.
