On one of the frames September 6, 2020July 3, 2020 ~ Jnana Hodson Inside the hive, our honeybees build up honeycomb on frames for their queen to fill with eggs, and then seal it with nutrients and a protective covering. There are 20 of these deep frames in the hive. Our honey will come from another 10 short ones atop the hive. (Photo by Rachel Williams) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

We had a hive of bees until 3 years ago. These moths took over the hive and killed the bees. We generally got 14 pints of honey a year.
Keeping bees is not as easy as folks think, is it? But they are amazing, and we credit them for making our garden more productive.
Bees take a lot of work and a lot of time. But they are well worth it.
