After what has seemed like a very long time, we are very excited to start our bee-keeping journey. Can’t have a serious homestead without bees, right? I have a nice space picked out for them up by the pond, somewhat sheltered by trees and wild honeysuckle but a nice clear route down to our proposed vegetable garden. I will plant some enticing flowers in a “bee corridor” down to where I really want them, pollinating my fruit and vegetables.
It’s way too cold for establishing a colony just yet so all I can do is read up about bee-keeping and of course get the hive built.
I ordered this one from Galena Farms, via Amazon:
It was really reasonably priced and looked good to me. Came on time, packaged brilliantly and I spent a happy , if cold, morning assembling it. Can’t wait to get it in place.
I still need to order a spacesuit, but will wait for that until a little nearer the time. Enjoy the pics!
