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 just ordered a package of bees for April 17. I didn’t keep any honey bees last year and I missed having all those pollinators in the vegetable garden. It’s nice to think ahead to spring before winter even starts.
