Bee Relaxing

The awesome thing about other peoples vacations, are the wonderful little treats they bring back for you. Every year my neighbors travel to Wisconsin to spend time at the family cabin, and were kind enough to pick up some local honey for me. DELICIOUS!!! I wish I had...

A Bees Best Friend

The wonderful world of bees just keeps getting more and more crazy. I found this article on a most reliable news source (Facebook.. don’t judge) and I have to admit… IT’S GENIUS! Josh Kennet, a beekeeper from Australia, and his pup Bazz, are doing an...

BEE Extraordinary! No Dull Bee Hives Here.

I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. Nothing fancy for me, thank you. I like to keep things simple. I have never really been impressed by high price tags or designer labels and this is a quality I really like about myself. The bees have changed me. Changed me for...

Growing Calendar

When it’s cold and rainy outside, or when there is snow everywhere you look, it’s hard to start thinking about planting for the Spring. Personally I just want to curl up on the couch and binge watch Arrow or Stranger Things. I would make an awesome bear. I...

A Winter Bee

I know that every beekeeper goes through something like this, but it really doesn’t make it any easier. Fine, I will mark it as experience, but I don’t have like it. A few days ago Rachael went to feed both of our bee colonies, and check on how they were...

I am sad to report that there was no robbery. I was really hoping for one, but alas it was not meant to be. Rachael and I went into both boxes to see how our colonies were doing and if they had enough food for the winter. I was also really hoping to rob a bit of honey...

I WIN, I WIN!! Now What?

OH SWEET HONEYBEES I WON! I never win anything, so the fact that I get to say I won is new to me. Hold on a moment while I run to the top of the mountain, twirl around with my arms reaching up high to the sky. TWIRL! HUFF PUFF Wheeeeezzz. Okay, let’s think about...

Piggy Little Bees

I am worried about Rachael. You know how they say not to feed a stray cat or she will never leave? Well, apparently if you feed a bee, she will tell her friends and it will be a raging bee party that the cops get called to. Last Wednesday Rachael tells me she went out...

Sting Me On Four

Yesterday Rachael and I did a hive inspection, and I can’t say that it went all that well. The hive is just fine. There are tons of bees and lots of honey. We were even able to steal a few chunks of honey filled comb from them. I’m not quite sure why, but...
