We're in the News! Enjoy the throwback reflections in this piece by Martha Pings with the Soil Science Society of America! from last season's Unearthing a Soil Quilt Project. Here's to humbly collaborating with the humusphere and feel free to share with your human and microbial networks of mutual support:-)
The start of year 23 at Hilltop has had its bumps, but been auspicious in some ways too.
The bumps include the first week of April which managed, with its Siberian cold, to kill our bees after an otherwise successful ride through the Wisconsin winter. In March, the workers thronged the entrance to the hive, enjoying the warm sun and searching for the first apricot blossoms and dandelions to appear. The following week, their exoskeletons poured from the frames of comb in piles as I lifted each from the box that had been their home.
