And you only know that as you grow older...


Today we go to Beekeeping Lesson 1.  We never kept bees, but now we will be learning about it.  Possibly we will take the leap and get started. 

It's a series of 'hands-on' lessons that will last over the summer.  Theory is we will learn by doing and get experience with all the seasons of beekeeping.  At the introductory lesson (last month) we had an overview. 

One thing that makes me especially interested is that bees are disappearing (Colony Collapse) in large numbers.  One day the beekeeper returns to the hive and the bees are just GONE!  The reason is still unclear although there are several notions unproven.  Danger is that we NEED bees to pollinate the crops and fruits or there will be NO food.

I'll post back after our lesson and let you know how it goes and what we learned.  Maybe I'll even have a photo or two?!

WOW, am I excited about this! I have always wanted to farm bees but am afraid to attempt it because of all the bee attacks that have been going on here when they swarm. You never know when the queen decides to leave and the workers follow her? I have a friend that used to do it. He said the main thing is to have a fresh water source available to them. Please update this, I will thoroughly enjoy your posts on this topic!
Super great!
