We had lost two of our bee hives over the winter and our new bees arrived this week. Some of you may be thinking you can't believe Scott is still working with bees after being stung and almost dying of an anaphylactic reaction last year. What can I say, but this man loves his bees and he's promised me he's taking every precaution by wearing his bee suit and using his smoker. He checked each hive, inspecting the frames and removed the unwanted wax (I've got lots of beeswax for candles.) Scott smoked the new bees, making them lazy before adding them to their new home. The last thing he did was add the queen. He repeated the same process with the other hive and I'm thankful to say he didn't get stung all night. I admit I was a little worried and had an epi-pen with me just in case.
Our chickens are growing.
