We have Chickens, a garden in progress, baby fruit trees, and Bees!
Well...we don’t have them yet. They are due to arrive, all 24,000 of them, on Saturday April 5. Yep this Saturday my home takes one more step to self reliance.
And amazingly it’s only been 7 1/2 months!
To tell the truth I’m a little scared of Bees, but I know that if I don’t mess with them they won’t mess with me.
And with the scary disappearance of most of the honey bees it almost seems like an obligation, if you have the land for it, to help pollinate.
To anyone who is unaware of our daunting lack of honey bees you should watch this movie.
The Vanishing of the Bees
And even if you DO know about the disappearing of the bees you should still watch this. It bring the seriousness of this situation in to better light.
Sadly since I have no bees yet I can not write about the personal experience of having bees, what it sounds like, what it looks like etc...
But I am looking forward to golden honey right from our own beehives! There’s nothing better than your own honey( if your raising the bees right)
I know it is going to be weird and different having bees. Listening to their buzz and see them flying all around. I do know that soon we wont have to buy gallons of honey from Costco (my family eats a lot of honey)!
God made bees for a very important job so let’s thank Him for them!
