Bee Keeping!

Note the hollow logs in this vintage photo of Uncle Dan.

Aunt Fanny uses hollow logs, up in her holler.

I am joining the ranks of bee keeping next month. Hubby and I have been thinking about this for several years, however, we have not committed to the activity. He talked with a friend of his that has a hive in a small town backyard, and was convinced that it is a good thing to do. We have a problem with getting our garden pollinated, because there are not many native bees around early for the apples and pear trees. Now is the time to get the hive set up and ready for the bees...coming in April.
