|Missy from a Troy Hall nuc, 7am on a bright, spring day|
and already back with the goods.
Someday, I hope very soon, we can stop talking about - and arguing about - varroa and celebrate instead the amazing honey bee and all the wonderful gifts evolution has brought about in her.
I wanted to be a beekeeper to take advantage of a colony's willingness to let us lean in close and interact with their wild natures. All I've ever sought to do is honor that wildness and enjoy the privilege. 12 seasons in, continually fascinated, never bored, and truly love being a part of beekeeping culture.
