We’re a-buzz with prep for spring

We’re still seeing snow here, but that hasn’t stopped me from taking the plunge into spring and placing an order for our first colonies of honey bees!  They’ll be ready to pick up and install at the end of May, which means I am just buzzing around (hardy har har) getting ready to order hives, suits, and all the other necessary equipment to get started.  There is much to learn and research before diving into a project such as beekeeping, and I’ve written an article about the basics for the newest issue of From Scratch Magazine.   (“The Buzz on Beekeeping”, page 78.)  Check it out- I would love to know what you think of it, and the magazine in general!
