I need to apologize for neglecting this website. I am sorry that I have not been getting my posts out as regularly as I should! As you will read in my upcoming post, I had a very negative interaction with a very angry honey bee. She stung me not once, but twice and I am not sure why. I was more than 10 feet away from the hive and I was sitting on the ground planting veggies. My physical reaction to bee stings has gotten a lot worse. There is so much pain and swelling when I get stung now.
After she stung me, I have had a difficult time even being in the garden. This new fear that I have developed has aided in my being behind with everything now. It has taken me some time to be comfortable in my garden again. My garden has been suffering some neglect and I haven’t done much planting. Things are getting a little better. I have been spending more and more time in the garden. It’s been a few weeks now since the angry bee got me and I have not had any other angry bees after me.
I have inspected both of the top bar hives and I will be posting those inspections soon. The Langstroth hive has also been inspected and they are a strong colony. I will be inspecting the top bar hive in my yard again very soon and I am going to work hard at getting these post written and published in a more timely manner. Thank you for your patience with me as I continue on my beekeeping journey. I have hit some bumps along the way, but I am learning from each of them.
