We Have Hives!
Dave Burns met us at the door and introduced himself, though I felt as if we had already met after devouring information on beekeeping from his website, blog, videos, and audioblog. We had a great time talking with David, who makes hives as one of his duties on the farm. He explained the components to the hives and reinforced what I had learned at the Bee School in Kentucky on March 6th. After we loaded the hives in the truck and headed out the kids started peppering me with questions about bees; it was fun watching them start to have an interest in these facinating little creatures.
