The plot thickens…

Posted by & filed under beekeeping.


The early snap of warm weather has my bees building up quickly. So much so that I had to put a super on the hives at my current home. I had planned to move them in early April when I figured it was the most appropriate time to do so. Mother Nature had other plans. The hive is getting bigger and now I have to figure out if I can convince my landlords to let me keep the hives in their place until Fall, when I can split them up and recombine them in their new home. I’m not sure what to do, but quite honestly I wish I didn’t have to think about it right now. With my deadline being TODAY and Hayseed’s opening in two weeks I can’t spend too much time worrying about it.

The bees are more than fine for now. In fact, they seem happier than pigs in slop, coming back dusted with bright yellow pollen and literally buzzing in that way that bees do when it’s game on and it’s time for them to all pitch in and hustle. I hear that sound and I know exactly what they are saying and it makes me feel proud.

Pride aside, I’ve got to weigh my options on this hiving moving business. I have to admit I’m a little stressed out about it.
