Bee Box Building
Well, since the swarm set off a flurry of bee box building here are some new photos. He has some pre-fab boxes (supers mostly) that he is putting together himself.
Ross has some nucs coming any day now too and he realized he needed to get a move on creating some new boxes. Plus, another swarm would really deplete his box supply. SO he got creative.
We took down a really old fence on the side of our yard earlier this year. And Ross decide to try making some "recycled wood" bee hive boxes. Whaddya think? We think they turned out kinda cool. Now he's off designing new and fancier roofs for the boxes. Ay yi yi. Beekeeping is more time consuming than I thought.
Well, maybe my husband is just more time consuming than I thought. :-)
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
