Also I am planning on veering a bit from his style of beekeeping as I would like to be a more natural beekeeper (basically no medication though using some natural methods of keeping pests and diseases away- I am still learning on this!) and I want to try overwintering the bees this year.
After getting the bees I started feeling much more at ease. I do really enjoy watching them and marveling and God's wonderful creation!
I will study and learn to the best of my ability, pray hard, do my best and then be content with the results.
This year I tried making my own pollen patties. I am curious to see if they like them. I found the recipe here but I made a much smaller batch for my two hives.
