For Christmas, Ben got me a bee box and pre-ordered some bees. We set them up in Eagle and left them there until things were flowering up here. Ben's so calm, he approaches the bees with no protective gear. Me, I'm still a little afraid. We just added the top box which will be the honey for us. The bottom two are for brood and honey to sustain the bees over the winter. It's been fun and really easy, there's not much work to it yet. I guess they'll be some harvesting and winterizing work we better study up on, but so far so good.
