    A peek at my HONEYBEES!

    I know Mark has done a few posts recently about the importance of bees/pollinators. I have a hive and was out to do a fall check yesterday---and figure out my overwintering plan for all of my worker bees! I have a great post with a ton of pics if you are interested in checking it out!

    Thanks! Hopefully if all goes well I can harvest next fall! I may take one frame this year...about 4 pounds just because I'm curious to taste my own local honey! Bees can need up to 100 lbs of their own honey stores to make it through the winter. That's a LOT of honey! Hubby is allergic to honeybees, but kind enough to let me have them. (I havent killed him yet!)

    So awesome! I want to keep bees, too, but my landlady has yet to approve. (she's slow to approve things)

    So cool! I am desperately jealous of you getting to live in such a beautiful place too.
