Summer in March?

We're hungry!

We fed the girls Sunday night – first time in two weeks. They had totally demolished the last patties, other than a speck of paper still inside he hive from the last meal. They tore into the new patties within seconds. Watching them belly up to the edges of the protein/carbohydrate patties like cattle at a trough was fascinating. Since rain in a constant in the forecast for a while, we’re not sure when we’ll get back as we need dry weather to get through the field to the site.

Pig the Wonder Cat + Mark = Construction Success!

Construction on the new facilities for our expansion has been moving along. More supers need to be put together and then it’s time for paint, paint, paint.

WHAT is with this crazy-warm weather in mid-March?! We took the winter tarpaper and lid insulation off this weekend. Now, everyone cross your fingers and ask Mother Nature to not plunge us back into a cold streak.

Robin had her allergy tests a couple weeks ago. Kind of. Confusion at the office reigned as she requested the stinging insects test but the appointment was not timed right so it could be completed that day. Back to the drawing board on the 26th.  *sigh*


About Idiots Keeping Bees

We're always looking for new adventures, and well, learning about beekeeping seemed like a good idea. We had one hive in 2011, and we've increased since then Our goal is 10ish colonies, but we haven't hit our mark quite yet. We've found talking with other beekeepers to be invaluable, so we're starting this blog to keep long-distance conversations rolling throughout the year. If we can figure out beekeeping, so can you!
