It's hard raising bee's. So much is out of our control, so much of it a mystery.
I watched More Than Honey recently, a documentary about bees. It surely solidified my commitment to the art of raising bees, as well as my desire to raise animals with care and compassion. Elsa's interest is inspiring, she loves the bees and is a careful and gentle keeper. At this point she knows just as much as I do and it's so fun sharing this experience with her. We are also lucky to have the hands and knowledge of our next door neighbor Becca.
We currently have 3 hives. I sure hope they survive the winter.
