This bonus episode is all about bees. Our regular knitting, spinning, and fiber adventures episode will be published in Episode 66 on the weekend of May 12/13.
Kelly picked up two packages of treatment free bees to add to her apiary. They rode home in the car and were successfully installed the same day. She is so happy with the improvement of her beekeeping skills since 2015. Click here for video of the package installation.
The next day the existing hive that had been cut out of a drain pipe and had been progressing well swarmed. She saw the swarm from start to finish and describes the incredible experience. Click here for video of the swarm experience.
These are my first attempts to create YouTube videos. We won't be changing the podcast to video, but it was fun to document the experience for a YouTube supplement.
