In Bloom🌺🌸

It’s almost June and the hard work of the spring is paying off. Here are some shots of my pollinator-friendly plants.

I thought I would start sharing the progress of the garden as well as the bees.

The hive continues to live even though it’s small. The recent pollen should help them to grow over the next few weeks. I will keep posting…

Bee Well,

Michelle

Small Hive

This has been a challenging time. Went to visit a hive today and found less than 20 bees.

Visit 5/24/20 – formation of small queen peanut

The recent rains has not helped this hive and I may have to pickup a new package. Thus, one of the plights of modern beekeeping is the constant cycle of issues.

Bee Safe! Michelle

Bee Check

Today I saw a story on the news story on “killer hornets” so I decided to check on my hive. It is a beautiful day and so far the hive is doing well.

Here is a quick video

Bee Progress

Just a quick check-in at the home hive. It has been a little more than two weeks since the install and the hive is doing well.

Stay safe and Take care🐝

Bees 🐝 in the time of Covid

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 .

BeeMore 🐝 Update

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

New beehive

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🌻🐝

Nuc Pickup

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 🌞

Bee Hive Stand

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!
