It was a month of preparation as it is for all keepers of bees! Signs, fencing, platforms, new hives and more!
Our new sign was posted on the honey house!
This year’s infrastructure improves were led by Larissa wanting to add an electrical fence to protect the hives from the critters of curiosity.
With that idea came along with improving the areas around the hives. So there we were building platforms that began with a bit of earth work. Thankfully Larissa is a farmer at heart and has the equipment to manage the preparations… the platforms and re-landscaping were completed in a couple of afternoon. The new polystyrene hives were placed and we are ready for the Nucs to arrive.
Creating – it never stops. This month Larissa is up to creative products like the new beverage carrier! Perfect for BYOB gatherings!
The photos tell the story!
We are still in the mountains enjoying the last of snow on skis, tuning up the bikes and getting the first spring paddles in on the rivers!
