FarmGirl Friday Blog Hop! #50

Wow!  Can you believe it's been 50 weeks already???  Time flies when you're having fun...
Happy Friday!
I am having a bit of technical difficulty this morning, so please excuse the mess...  but here's my farmgirl progress this week.

Yesterday, Jerry and I trecked up to Fresno to pick up my beehives.  Today I am going to get busy sealing the exterior of the beehives before I bring home my first nuc of bees tomorrow.   It will be my first time splitting hives.  My mentor and I will be splitting 60 hives, if time and weather permits...

 I am having a tough time getting anything to load today...sorry.

My seedlings are doing well.  The greenhouse provides the perfect combination of sunlight and warmth.  Everything is growing like weeds. I am starting to see signs of true leaves developing in a few buckets, so I think I will be transplanting/separating them soon.  Exciting!

I got another mini-quilt swap done and shipped!  Yippee!

Finally, I'd like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to everyone that has shared and contributed to Farmgirl Friday.  Many of us use the insight we gain from your posts to start our own homesteading ventures.  Your articles and the wisdom gained from your elbow grease are invaluable tools and gifts.  Thank you!!!  
Okay, no more gushing, now's your chance to share what you've been up to on your homestead this week.  

Here's how to link up!
1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, chicken coop, recipes, studio or workshop. You get the idea!

2). Leave your entry in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.

3). Please include the Farmgirl Friday button ( or link back here ) in your post and remember to share this hop with all of your blogging friends!

FYI- We are experiencing internet problems today...  The servers are struggling to keep up with traffic.  I have checked a few other hops open now and they are experiencing the same difficulties ie: linkies not opening before the page times out, etc. I hope they work around it soon.   I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Linky tools seems to be acting up today. Let's hope things are resolved so folks can continue to link up the rest of the week! I don't want to miss anything!
    Happy Farmirl Friday!
