bee moving day...













Julianne, the Official Field Lab Bee Keeper, came out this morning to move the bees out of their speaker box into a proper bee box. (video coming soon)  All went according to plan and hopefully they will settle into their new accommodations quickly.  They seem to be pretty chilled out and hopefully that will make for some extra sweet honey.  I got stung late this afternoon but barely felt it.  I like to think it was just a thank you for the new digs - they were pretty cramped in their old location.  91,101,71,0,B

I have been seeing bees everywhere. People use them in hydroponic green house's to help pollinate, Of course they use them for honey I never imagined people would actually go and buy a bee hive! I am 6'5" tall and 300 pounds and scared of bees!!!

Im thinking of buying a hive just to get over it!
