It’s so Easy to Construct a Beehive in Your Yard

After the pandemic, our friend Lisa decided that she wanted to move to the country. She is a small town chic and moving back to the country was something that she always talked about. And going through quarantine just confirmed that she no longer desired to live in the city. So, she discussed it with her spouse Mark, and they bought a gorgeous lake house by a lake, along the countryside of the state. I am an immense country boy, but I must admit that I fell in love with their home. I wouldn’t live there permanently, but I would use that as a spot to go when I needed an escape from the city. A couple weeks ago, Lisa and I were chatting on the phone, and she mentioned that they created a beehive in their yard. I didn’t realize that this was something Lisa wanted to do, however while living in a rural section this is something that is perhaps normal. Well, she explained that Mark was able to build a Langstroth hive, which is the simplest beehive to build for beginners. It has some small hive boxes that are stacked on top of each other with frames for where the honeycomb will be built. Once the hive was created, they contacted a local beekeeper who was able to help them set up the colony. She was so gleeful about having fresh honey from her backyard to use in her teas as well as in her pastries and meals. She offered to bring me some honey and I am absolutely looking forward to trying the raw honey that our friend harvests from her backyard.
