Apple harvest was early and weak. Only 4 gallons from one tree. None off the others. Made right at 12 quarts of applesauce.

Dryer stopped drying. Would not produce heat. Vents clean, tested all the switches on the rear and everything is good. Still no heat. Finally tore the whole thing apart, removed the drum and the motor. The switch on the motor had 2 pieces of lint in it stopping contact from happening when the motor was spinning the drum. What a stupid design.

Fertilized the onionsPlants
If you fertilize the onions instead of ignoring them they bulb. Picked more large bulbed onions today than any other year, the only thing different was I fertilized them. In past years they grew great tops but didnt bulb.

Yearly photosHouse
Yearly house photos are a month late. Forgot to take them. There is a new apple tree, the old one died and I pushed it over by hand last year. Grapes are leafed out since its April. Took some photos of the beehives and equipment.

Castillo de San MarcosForts
Went to St. Augustine with friends end of March. Added more pictures of the fort. We took the trolley around town, I think it was the first time I rode it.

Virgin queens still swarmingBeekeeping
4 so far. The orange tree, branch in the pasture which interrupted dads visit, high up in the sycamore just at the limit of my pole bucket, and last night on the mayhaw. Running out of nuc boxes again, 2 left which are the ones I want to leave at the other sites in case I need to do splits. Ran out of frames had to build more last night for that swarm.

Fewer trainsTrains
Train traffic is almost dead. Locals still run (M746 southbound and M743 down from Attapulgus) and Q608 and Q609 but nothing else. Coal was rerouted north last year and as of the first of the month Q601, Q602, Q605 and Q606 arent coming through here any more either. The line is up for sale and there are rumors FEC might buy it but no one local has said anything.

MouseComputer/Web pages, House
Got the mouse. Heard it when I was up all night last weekend playing games. Put traps way back in the attic where I heard it. Also took the opportunity to run the network cable for the library to the right hole not though the ceiling. Hadn't heard the mouse again so thought maybe I scared it off. Nope it was caught in that far trap. Removed all the traps today since I havent heard any more an nothing set the rest off.
