This weekend it hit me: the first 10 packages of bees could arrive as soon as April 4th. This Saturday! Needless to say, I was a flurry of action this weekend, installing screens, cutting plexiglass, creating roofs, cutting bottoms and completing numerous other tasks I’ve been putting off. There is a lot more work to do before Saturday, so each evening this week I will be working tirelessly to get the hives ready!
The first 10 packages will be installed into 9 top bar hives and one Warre hive and placed in residential areas close to Oak Grove, Oregon. The second 10 packages will be arriving around April 20th and they will be placed in wine country at various organic and biodynamic wineries.
