The making of the Bee Hive

We are VERY excited..Our First Beehive is made and soon the second will join it...We will paint it with a coat of linseed oil and bees wax mixed..and have put in an order for two Nucs with queens!
Here is a pictorial presentation of my husband building the Bee Hive.

A thing of Beauty is it not? and with No more than a Table saw, a drill and hammer!!!
This is a Langstroth BeeHive..After weeks of research and some advice from a long time Bee keeper..we were convinced that this hive style is less stressful on the bees..because it does not entail breaking into the Brooder area every time you want to harvest honey.  Howie is considering doing a small workshop with the building of the next Bee Hive.


Finishing touches on the BeeHive!!

 The Feeder box which sits on top of the supers.
                                        The lid of the feeder box.
                                          And Finally the roof.
My Husband sure is an amazing man!!

I don't think there is ANYTHING we need that he couldn't build!
I will continue to add to this section as our life with BEES takes shape!
Now They are ready for BEES!

Hi Bev, I got your blog address from Little Granmothers website. I am Thoko/Carol in the tribe. I LOVE your blog! Your pictures of Hubby making the bee hive are informative, and it is refreshing to connect with people who live with such intergrity. I too have a place in the countryside that I am slowly develpoing into something, although I don't live there (yet). I wish you all teh best and am looking forward to your next post.
Cheers, Carol

Thanks Carol!
We Do the best we can..We did not always work as close with the mother as we try to is a processing that no steps can be missed...each step we take..leaves us more fulfilled...and more grateful for the bounty of mother earth..It helps to rememeber that we are EXACTLY where we are supposed to be in our awareness and long as we know that..we can walk forward with loving intent. Right?
Thanks for you kind comments on our blog.

You are amazing! Howard is amazing! But, could you get Howard some safety glasses and some ear plugs because none of us want to see such a talented man as he (or anyone for that matter) brought down by woodworking related injury!
You keep posting! I'll keep reading and learning!
