Bee is for Betsy

After a decade of reading and daydreaming, I’m finally taking the plunge. I bought a beehive! I have a cool new hat with a protective veil and a smoker. I still have to finish assembling the supers and the frames, but I’m getting geared up.

I took a beekeeping class a couple of years ago, but walked away intimidated. Earlier this month, Nancy Mangion of Beekeepers Warehouse gave an inspiring talk at my garden club. I was convinced that this is the year to try my hand at beekeeping. I’m definitely a little nervous, but excitement outweighs the trepidation.

The bees arrive at the end of April. Stay tuned for more buzz about my latest project as it unfolds.
