I'm a long time vegetable gardener and a new beekeeper. I have two hives located in Lincoln MA, a rural area northwest of Boston. I am keeping bees to pollinate my fruit trees, blueberry bushes and vegetables. And because I LOVE honey. Sure hope I can be successful at bee keeping.

i've reserved a new queen
I'll drive up to Tyngsboro to New England Bees this afternoon and pick her up. In July, they have native queens bred from their survivor stock. I'll get some advice on installing her and keeping the hive healthy, too.
