I am off to Navasota on Friday the 13th to pick-up Nuc Pack, 4 frames of bees and a queen. My wife still gives me the hairy eyeball look when I bring up my latest hobby/venture! Once the hive becomes part of my backyard garden landscape it will fade as a focal point( I hope! )

Sunday, of this week I finished building all of the hive parts. I saved a few dollars and assembled everything myself. If I value my time at about 25 cents per hour I break even. I will admit that I was not very efficient. I will be adding a super ASAP. I may just buy it complete!

I need to thank Linda who writes “The Orange Bee” blog. A talented writer, cook and bee keeper. Her inspiration along with the beekeeping class my daughter Lisa gave me for Christmas has pushed me off center! Check out Linda’s blog.
