Friends with Bees
Yesterday I went to pick up some of the tools we borrowed from the Parks and People tool share, and found my friend Dane checking on his bees. Thought I'd post a few photos to share!
(Oh boy, can't wait for a new camera.. it would be nice to actually be able to see the bees in detail in the photo.)
Aren't his hives pretty?!
I don't know much about bees, although I did go to the Parks & People beekeeping workshop back in 2009. I think Dane was checking up on his queens. One day I'd like to learn more, but I think I've got my hands full for now!
All of the combs are lined up on this table, but I'm not sure why:
Worms, ducks, chickens, rabbits, bees, soldier fly larvae... all great small scale livestock for the urban environment. I can dream of a day for pygmy goats though!
Boone St. garden update coming soon!
