Well here are some of our bee colonies in ND. Excellent year for Clover honey! The lower box is home with the queen mommy, the second box is their food pantry for the family and all upper boxes on top of that is extra honey storage. Look at all the bees flying around in the air. They love beeing busy! The queen loves it and she is busy laying eggs for babies everyday. These busy ladies only live 3 weeks during the honey season so there needs to be a steadily growing family.
Great Recipe for the kids and whole family to help pick, shell, chop, veggies fresh from the garden! Preparation time 15 min. Cook time 15-20
