It’s been some time but, we finally re-started the bee hobby!  Two nucs arrived on the weekend and a new helper came by to help set up the hive.  He spotted one of the queens right away!  I guess that’s a great sign for adventures ahead.

We’ve already talked about a sticky honey harvest this fall.  We agreed that it might be a bit messy – but worth it.

Here’s to lots of fun learning and not too many stings.

Setting up the Hive
It was great to have a helper as we transferred the bees to their new home.  The smoker worked well today too…except for our eyes 🙂
