Catch-up

We started two hives of bees the first week of April this year.  The short of it is that one queen was bad or died right off the bat and the hives got combined.  They were split again the middle of July and we’re still waiting to see if the bees are going to re-queen themselves.  Judith and I did a full  inspection of the hive with the queen and a partial inspection of the other, just enough to see that there were queen cells drawn out.  We’ll be checking again in a couple of weeks to make sure the hatched queen mated and made it back to the hive to start her queenly duties.

I’m looking forward to no more feeding!  Hopefully in less than a month, I’ll be completely finished with feeding and will hopefully reap a little honey from the fall flow if there is one.

Hello world!

Here’s the new website!  I’ve been playing around with figuring out how I wanted to do the hosting and now have made decisions and it’s all set up!  This is the first post and since I’m kind of a dork it has the appropriately dorky title 🙂

More will be coming in the next few weeks including pictures and history and mission statements, but for now I’m just going to be excited about the fact that this is up and running.
