The apiary sits on a hill just next to the garden and greenhouse. We have gardens planted with various flowers that attract them and provide them with a lot of pollen as well as neighboring yards. The storage bin is an essential part for keeping this and that. If you look closely each hive has a couple of cinder blocks for the smoker and tool placement.
This picture shows some of the space that they have not quite filled in yet. There are queen excluders to keep her down below so only honey is stored in these cells. I am trully excited about our bees this year, we will not only be offering honey for sale, but also lip balms, bee pollen, beeswax ornaments and comb honey!
