Chickens and Bees continued

In my continuing attempt to learn to keep bees, I came across a little something that gave me the best laugh I have had in a long long time. My thanks to the Honeyflow Farm website for this little tidbit titled "when I grow up", and for the great pictorial of a year's beekeeping and honey harvesting activity.

For anyone interested in learning about beekeeping, Gobeekeeping is a great starter site. I highly suggest that anyone living rurally consider looking at keeping at least one colony if there are none around.

As link wandering will often do, I was also led to a delightful chicken video. I swear, anyone who can watch it without grinning and/or laughing and just feeling uplifted a bit overall, has no soul.

Thanks for this link. I was looking. Hope to start my first hive this spring.

You're welcome! Obviously I am always happy to hear this. I hope it goes well for you. Im trying to find a setup to buy so I have a model to start building them. I'd love to be able to set out a hive this spring but I may have to aim for 2 next year and maybe 5 the year after. So many ideas to try and things to do...I get bad at only planning and not doing.

I know what you mean. I thought I could do it this spring but we have so much other stuff going on that I don't think I will get to it. Just getting a garden going will be a challenge! I am like yourself, very bad at planning. I do very well with spontaneity though.
