One of my accomplishments for the week was picking up bees and this morning we installed them. Stay safe and I will update you on my progress. Below are some photos and video of my husband Warren helping me early on Saturday morning .
Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few months. I have started my garden but, I’m this time of Covid-19, I have found it difficult to start my own classes. However, I will start posting resources and progress on my latest projects.
Bee safe and Bee well! Michelle
Got up early this morning to pick up some new bees for a client. We got lucky that the weather is mild today and we got out before it got hot.
Thank you to my bee assistant Warren for helping me to get this done.
Have a great day🌻🐝
Here are some photos from the picking up my first client nuc.
Thank you Mick Wiser and my bee partner Warren Hedgepeth for your help this morning 🌞
My handy bee helper husband devised a new hive stand for my newest client.
This stand is alternative to two the wood cinder block creation that have been using.
Thank goodness that my Father’s Day gifts have come in handy. If you want the directions on how he put it together contact me!
Here are some early photos of the garden this year. My this year is to grow things that we love to eat and herbs and flowers to feed the bees 🐝
I had the opportunity to see visit my nucs for the new season. I am starting late but, it was great to see all of these healthy bees in Howard County.
I will be checking in again soon!
Sorry for the radio silence on the site and lack of new posts! This winter has been busy.
The weird winter weather was not good for my bees. Sadly, I lost my last hive a few weeks ago so I am in a rebuilding mode.
This seasons post may focus more on my garden and pollinator friendly activities. I will still be a sources of support for new keepers but, I will probably curtail my number of hives.
Below are some shots of the winter aftermath.
Sorry for the delay for my lack of posts. Here are some photos of my outing today!
I went to both sites in Park Heights to check on some hives for the other keepers. I found that I am at 50% of my hives made it through which isn’t so bad. Only one was invested with moths. Here are some more photos below:
I will be doing some visits as the weather cools and I will be doing some feeding. I added some entrance feeders today so that they have a chance.
Happy Fall! I will post again soon!
