Bee Hives are here!

00101_2VLP9RwPVxC_600x450I’ve acquired my first two bee hives! Found a really great carpenter in the North Georgia Mountains who takes the time to make sure the hives are square and shares fun conversation when we met. This weekend I painted the hives during the glorious 60 degree warm weather we had here in Georgia.

Next steps…
– Learn a bit more about bee keeping at the Cheorkee Bee School on Feb 21
– Bee arrival – Mid / Late March
– Buy remaining hive tools, including that all important bee hive suit! I need to move this one up before I get the bees!
– Confirm the bee hive location

I’m almost ready to go. Any advice for the novice bee keeper?
