Waiting for the Berry Season to Begin

The webcam is in place, as it the solar panel to power it. We are waiting for some technical details to be resolved before the webcam will be available on line. Soon, we hope.

Meanwhile, Rosie contacted me yesterday about the Osmia aglaia. They were out of town over the weekend. Before leaving she checked the containers of bee cocoons, and nothing had emerged yet. But the weekend weather was warm and apparently sometime over the weekend some of the O. aglaia started to emerge. She found them yesterday shortly after returning home. So, they have been moved to the refrigerator. There's no raspberry bloom yet on the farm. Blueberries should bloom soon. Meanwhile, a cold front came through and temperatures are back to the 40s and 50s, with some rain expected during the week.
