Hello world!

Hello world!

According to most beekeeping literature, we should expect from first year hives “no extra honey, but no swarms either.”

As of July 16th, Tom’s Bee-Loved Hives are well on their way to doling out golden goodness to the local community. Several hives have not one but two honey supers being filled (though some hives still aren’t producing enough honey even for themselves, per the rule).

Unfortunately, as of July 16th, we’ve also had two, possibly three swarms! We aren’t entirely sure what our first year bees are thinking, but maybe they’re just old at heart…

One of our many July 2010 swarms. Yes, those are all bees.
