It’s been a week since I installed my hive and I’m so excited to see what the bees are doing. I didn’t see the queen, but I know she’s in there because she’s started laying eggs.
You may have noticed my purple gloves – they’re dishwashing gloves. I got the idea from my Beekeeping for Dummies book. They fit my hands better but are still thick enough to protect my hands from stings.
