The Bees Knees

We have a new addition to our family:  30,000 bees.

Bryan got a bug up his butt (badum, ching!) to start raising bees.  There are lots of benefits to raising bees.  You know, the antiseptic property of honey, allergy-reducing benefits, the cool hat you get to wear...  It is kind of neat.

So we begin this new adventure.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

I've been thinking about putting together a hive or two since I heard about the bee shortage last year (or 2 years ago?) Anyways I can't wait to hear how it goes! And thank you for doing your part to keep bees around :)

So are they in your backyard, or what?

My cousin's husband has some bees...and we reap the benefits of gallons of honey. Love it! Hope yours are a success.
