What's the Buzz

Bees... that's what! Our friend, Debbie Clayton, came over Saturday and helped Brett install bees in our first hive. I showed up just after the installation with the camera. We purchased 3 pounds of bees. It sounded like there was a fan running in the hive.

We can't wait to get honey but we've learned that the bees often don't produce enough honey in the first year to harvest any. :(

I was surprised how content the bees seemed. There were LOTS of them flying around us but they didn't even seem to notice us. Here'a a photo of me and Brett in typ ical beekeepers attire - except for the big hole in his pants - that's a big beekeepers no-no!
