Returning to the hive
« on: September 15, 2006, 01:53:52 PM »
As a kid (many years ago) I helped my father keep 50+ hives of bees that were used to pollinate  or 200 acres of birdsfoot trefoil that we raised for seed.  The honey was almost as clear as water.  I a about to get some used equipment from a friend.  Another friend is a current beekeeper and we will go through the materials and see if it all needs to be burned or can be safely used. I hope to build a small room in the top floor of my garage to house a hive or two.  Id do this mostly to keep the bears away. It will also make a very nice controlled environment for the bees.  I love creative solutions to problems and I think this project will provide ample opportunity to solves these problems.  I love the Internet and the way it allows collections of fine people with similar passions to meet and share information.

Looking forward to this experience.

Actually Underhill means "Under the 'hill'  of Mt. Mansfield", out highest peak at almost 1 mile high. Not much by western standards but a pretty good bump for VT.
