    Got me some bees

    Had a Beekeeper come set up 6 hives this past weekend on my property out back. He needs a place to put bees and I need bees for a few benefits.
    1. Pollination help in the garden.
    2. 6 out of my 7.5 acres homestead will now be going to ag exempt after the 5 years. I wish I had done this years ago.
    3. A jar of honey every once in awhile.

    Interesting thing is that the beekeeper isn't doing it for honey production but for the harvesting of queens. Apparently he has some crossbreed of bees/queens that are better for the Texas climate. He gets the queens and some bees and resells them.

    I went back there this evening and they were definitely active.

    It's a fun hobby. Don't know about making a living at it.

    I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

    - Jeremiah 31:33

    And in the last days of the Republic the people lost their faith in God, the law, reason, truth, and in the warriors who protected all these and the people. In sorrow, the warriors walked away leaving the barbarians to turn on themselves...
