Winter Bee Keeping/ My Hives
For those of you who enjoy following my honey bee posts – Here’s a photo i took of my hives yesterday.
Winter is generally a slow time for beekeepers. During winter we usually repair hive parts, and prepare for springtime. On mild days my bees have been out and flying (cleansing flights.) I check on them then, and have been feeding them fondant because they went into winter light. so far, so good with my girls.
Happy Holidays from one of our fav DOGS…

Meet adorable Ace, an adoptable pit bull puppy with a stellar temperament. Ace was recently adopted BUT the adoption fell thru, not because of anything ace did, but because of breed specific bias. Sadly, neighbors in the complex of the family where ace was adopted, threatened to move out if a pit bull moved in. The landlord then banned Ace and all pit bulls from the complex. Ignorance on the part of a community is what caused this adoption to fall thru. His adopters were heartbroken and returned Ace to his rescue group…
Happily, Ace was welcomed back into his wonderful foster home and he is once again, an adoptable pit bull puppy. Contact PAWS Montclair to learn more about adopting Ace.
UPDATE – Ace has been adopted to a wonderful pit bull lovin family! live a long, happy, well loved life Ace!
Meet our dogs… Bear, Little, MayMay, Cozy and Sampa.
Last year, I became a Certified Beginner Bee Keeper. And, this spring we welcomed our newest pets, about 16,000 gentle Italian honey bees, into our family of dogs, and birds. Here is a video welcoming our new bees…
Keeping honey bees is a very hands on endeavor, especially during the first year. We need to make food for them and feed them, do daily checks of food levels and weekly checks and maintenance of the hives…and we love it.
Here is what the delicious bee food that I make for my bees looks like…
It did not take long for our bees to grow out of their one box hives. So, with the help of our curious dogs, we put together and painted a second “large brood super” for each hive.
Here are the hives in June 2014. The bees seem to really like the extra room…
This is one of my assistants, Bear, a german shepherd helping me with feedings, inspections and general maintenance of the hives.
And here is our beautiful backyard, which would not be complete without our amazing bees.
