My bees have finally arrived! I'm overly excited about it, to the point that everyone may think I'm a little bit insane...
It was a bad year for the apiary I bought them from, so they came very late. (They should've come in May!) This means that they may not survive the winter if I don't get them established quick enough to prepare for the cold.
I'm doing my best, and following every instruction I'm given to a tee.
So far, so good.
The kids are already used to the idea of "pet bees" and Matt will eventually come around. :)
I've yet to be stung, so I'm taking that as a sign that they are happy.
Wish me luck...I'm going to need it!
