What is wrong with this picture? Snow! It is however spring in Northern Minnesota. We do not exactly welcome snow in late April, but we cannot rule it out.
As you can tell from the images above I am giving beekeeping a go this year, starting again with a nucleus colony of bees to get as much of a head start as I can given our limited season in my northern Minnesota north woods.
They are installed and already settling into their new home. I am already enjoying the familiar sights, sounds and smells of the beekeeping experience, happy to welcome bees back into our hobby farm - and the experience of learning about them - and from them back into my life.
