So, we've recently become beekeepers.
Is that weird? I feel like that's kind of weird.
Anyway, we have a bit of land outside of Austin, and have both been interested in the idea of having some beehives. This year, we actually made it happen.
We picked up two packages (roughly 10,000 bees per package) from a local store in Austin, and have installed them in two hives out on our property!
The bees are absolutely fascinating creatures, and we've had a blast working with them over the past month and a half. You don't get honey the first season, so we won't reap immediate benefits for another year, but we're definitely looking forward to learning all we can, and robbing some good mesquite honey come 2016.
