Beekeeping 101

Roy’s got a new hobby.  He just graduated from bee school and he’s now an official junior beekeeper!

Yup, right here in the burbs, 2 hives.  This morning he picked up 20,000 bees and now they’re flying around the hives acclimating to their new surroundings.  Hopefully they’ll like their home and we’ll be able to give away some yummy honey.

So now there are three queen bees at my house, two in the hives and me!  Roy’s a lucky man!!

I’ll be keeping you up to date on how the bees are doing.  Here are a couple of pictures from day one in our backyard!
