Our bees are hived!
Oh,joy, we picked up our bees at the apiary on Saturday, and hived them as soon as we got home. 20,000 Italian All American bees and two queens. We are hoping that the ladies not only improve the pollination rate in our vegetable garden, but help out the neighbors as well. Since bees will travel two miles for pollen, we will have three neighbors that may benefit. And of course, we'll all share the honey!
I love living in the country!
