I’ve Been Busy

Today was the big bee day. I drove all the way down to trouble to do the top bar hive workshop with Paoletto Farms. I got home and stained the hive; it dried fast enough that I could have installed them tonight but I’m just too tiered.

  1. So how long does it take them to make honey? Because I think we need to test it out for scientific purposes and all.

    Are you naming the whole hive or each bee – because the later will take a while.

    1. I’ve decided to name all the bees Bob to help simplify things. Now I need to come up with a name for the entire hive. There probably won’t be any honey until fall. Its a bit hit or miss if you get any your first year or not, so keep your fingers crossed for a good year.
