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...

Ohhh The Relief…

As Katrina has already shared with you in the previous post, I was stung multiple times the other day when we ventured into the hive. I take full responsibility. I was a little over confident thinking I could just mosey on in there with a short sleeve t-shirt on. Well...

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 for some...

Bee It Three To Make Me Happy

Rachael and I are just about as excited as two newbee's can bee. I got a message from a friend yesterday letting me know one of her clients is selling two complete hives from swarms he had gathered locally, for super cheap. Per his wife's order he needed to get rid of...

The Girls Were Ready For Their Close-up

I finally did it! I finally rented a macro lens to checkout! I waited for a weekend when my daughter would be home from school. She's a photography hobbyist as well and I wanted to get a second opinion. I'm normally a portrait photographer and she is more into still...

The Electric Side of Pollination

We all know that bees are just about the most important little critters on the planet and to me one of the most fascinating. It seems every day I learn something new and it blows my mind. Rachael posted on Instagram an incredible video of one of our lovely ladies...

Bees Aren’t The Only Things We’re Saving!

So, as you could tell from Katrina's last post, The Bee Lifeguard, I'm a bit of a bleeding heart when it comes to all living creatures. I can not just stand by and watch suffering, no matter how big or small. Boy, oh boy was I put to the test yesterday! I have agreed...

Bee The Lifeguard

I think I might have to cut Rachael off from her bee rescue efforts. I know, that sounds horrible. Both of our families are enjoying the wonderful lake together this week. We have found a few bees that were trying to drink from the lake, but instead went too far in...

Bee Water Stations

Not everyone can be a beekeeper, but anyone can help our wonderful little friends by putting a bee watering station in their yard. It is fun, easy, and pretty inexpensive. Bees get thirsty and need a safe place to drink. All you need is a shallow dish (A pie dish...

Honey-Roasted Carrots

I should start by saying that I really hate cooking. It's too hot, you stand for too long, and it is a guarantee that I will burn myself at some point in the process, even when I am just making a sandwich. So you can probably guess my cooking skill level. To put it...

I am always searching for great low cost and even free books on Beekeeping. I often learn something new from each of these books, so I thought I might share my latest find. Beekeeping: The Ultimate Guide To Beekeeping: How to Start Your First Colony and Avoid Common...

A Beeutiful New Water Bottle

I received this cute little S'ip by S’well water bottle as a Mother’s Day gift from my son. I love that it has little honey bees on it. I try to use reusable water bottles whenever possible so this was a perfect gift for me. We are not paid to do reviews of products,...
