This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

me and my new bees


Actually, it's not so easy to get a selfie with a new bee package. iPhone's don't work so well wearing leather bee gloves. But the bees did pose well I thought. They are very sweet bees. Once they take up residence and start protecting their hive, I won't do selfies with them.

I just installed three bee packages in my hives from dead-outs this winter. I got my bees from nebees this year but usually get them from crystal bee supply.

Did you get your bees from crystal bee supply?

I find Rick at NE bees very informative and if you have a need for a queen he's a good source from March to August.

Vin and Jan at Crystal bee in Peabody, MA is another option I learned at the Topsfield Bee Keeping class. I've been getting bees from them since 2011 but this year I couldn't justify the price increase so went to NE bees.

Thanks for the info!
