beekeeping adventures



 
 
 

last night Bekah & I decided to open up a hive that hadn't been touched in 4 years.
we initially wanted to split the hive.
when we opened the honey super there were thousands of bees in it & what looked to be queen activity.
yes, we got stung.
yes, we are crazy.
yes, i wore shorts (so smart).
we ended up leaving the 2 deep brood boxes and just hauled the shallow super.
the rest of the split will happen another time.
i've never had such an adrenaline rush!
it was one of the best & most hilarious nights.
thanks Bekah for being awesome.

Thanks! I'm having fun learning the beekeeping ropes. New discoveries: invest in some gloves, get a vail, & wear pants! I just love it.
