Bee keeping day 1

bee box and superA friend down the road offered to give us a bee box with a super box if we cleaned one up for him at the same time.

I don't know much about the art of bee keeping, but I know I like the taste of fresh honey and the idea of taking one more thing off the list that needs to be bought at the store or farmers market really makes it a worthwhile project.

I'm jealous--I'd love to keep bees someday! :-)

I'm looking forward to this installment. I was thinking about getting bees this year but instead of getting my first bees and my first chickens all at the same time maybe I should just sit back and learn from your mistakes. :-P

We're very excited about the bees too! I've heard they're harder than chickens, so you're probably right, Everett, to start with the birds --- those are easy. And, Brandy, no need to be jealous --- hopefully we'll get our operation up and running to the point that we can give you honey someday!
