Springtime is for the Bees!

Bees have a tendency to swarm in the Spring, and the Community Gardens are frequently a stopping place.  The swarms are harmless if left alone, and will usually move on in a day or so.

However, do use caution and some common sense.  If the bees are in YOUR plot, count yourself lucky to have had a visit and come back to water or weed later.  Watch where you put your hands and check the handles of tools/shovels before you grab them.  DON'T spray the bees with water.  Pollinators are our friends!

If you are allergic, please don't take chances - just leave the gardening for another day.

Thank you to Rick Adams for the buzz about the bees and the photo of a swarm in plot 53C.
