The bees, the bees, the bees are here!

IMG_7277We’re officially keeping bees in my neck of the woods, now. Two hives installed, and the Other Half is trying to entice a wild swarm to populate our third brood box.

I’ve learned so much already, and I’m sure plenty more is to come in this adventure!

I even get a fancy hat to wear. Every new venture should come with a hat, right?

The queens are both released into their hives (purple hive is quieter than green hive; we call it “angry hive”) and the workers are forming comb. Hopefully soon we’ll see if the queens have been laying! Fingers crossed…
