Solidifying our reputation as "those people," we now have bees! Matt and I have talked about this for years and have been cultivating a bee garden for a while now. As usual, I've been the cynical one and had my doubts about this endeavor, especially after a failed attempt at urban bee-keeping in NY about 13 years ago, but Matt won me over with all his research and the bee-keeping classes he took (and the Epi-pens we have stashed just in case). I'm so excited about this now! And I cannot believe how busy these little guys have been - that comb in the photo is just one of four panels they've produced since Saturday.
And this guy has been hanging around our backyard for a little over 3 weeks now. We've named him Gobbles, and we're hoping he hangs around until November. Heh.
Oh, Spring! So far it's been glorious!
