The Bees are Coming! The Bees are Coming!

11 May

Finally, the bees will be arriving this Saturday morning.

Posting a picture of the painted hive. I found a wooden pallet discarded on the street, so I decided to use it as a base. Cinder blocks are coming this Friday to prop them up.

My landlord has also gotten very enthusiastic about this, as his uncle was a “master beekeeper” and lived to be 105 years old. He sent me this article in Edible Queens, as a clipping, in snail mail. Here’ s the online version for young folks: http://www.ediblecommunities.com/queens/spring-2011/queens-bees.htm

(Note: Not all the hives will be used in the beginning, but that’s how they look if they are all stacked together).
