Oh. my. word.
I said I was going to do it, didn’t I? Yes, yes I did. And now? I’ve gone and done it.
Well, technically, McH went and did it, but only because I put in all the necessary orders, so somebody had to do it.
So I guess we’ve gone and done it, even though he’d rather I do it on my own from here on out.
Yes folks, we have bees.
Currently there are about six pounds, two hives worth, sitting in my garage. I think I’ll wait until McH gets home before I hive them. Right now, however, I am going to go feed them.
Yes, that’s right, feed them. It involves lots of care and wee little droppers and . . . just kidding. I’m just going to go squirt the snot out of them with sugar water. Then maybe I’ll take the hive components out to the spot where we are going to keep them. Then I’ll pace nervously around until I actually get around to putting them in the hives.
I really hope I don’t kill them.
Maybe in the fall I’ll do a honey give away on the blog if I don’t kill them.
Look at their beady little eyes. I think they hate me already. They will die out of spite, no matter what I do now.
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt is hiding under water.
