Updates All over the place...LOL

1) Grandma's swarm is in a hive and doing well...

2) We have sheep (3 ewes for now), so far they have been wonderful. i have built a woven wire fence for them since the pics were taken. they follow you anywhere with corn...LOL

3) I built a Top Bar Hive and Demoed it at the Charlottesville bee club. Its made out of a solid piece of Tobacco Barn Wood off the farm and rough cut air dried pine for the bars. It mimics Dennis Murrell's Kenyan hive closely but not exact due to wood width issues etc. I think its neat!

4) Not Bear Damage: This is how you find out if your girls are too young to be a beekeeper... LOL they did have fun playing with daddy's "Bee Frames"...LOL

  1. And I thought I was busy. You have more irons in the fire than anyone I know. I don't know how you keep up with it all. You are definitely younger and full of energy! Keep it up and keep up the updates. Love to hear your stories.
