For a long while now I have been toying with the idea of keeping bees. After watching the movie Secret Life of Bees, then I really wanted to give it a try. So today I finally took the plunge and ordered all the necessary equipment and the bees. They will be arriving May 6 th. I have no idea how to begin the new hive so we enlisted a local bee keeper who we know. We need all the help we can get! I have also been told we will not get any honey the first year because the bees need it to survive the winter. Which is a little disappointing, but good things comes to those who wait. Hope you all are having a blessed week.
