A good friend told me that when the fullness of life increases in intensity, itโ€™s time to turn up the self-care. ๐Ÿ’šHere are a few of my self-care rituals to manage the fullness of this week:
1.  A daily aromatic intention ritual. โœจ
2. A morning cup of black tea sweetened with honey from our hive. ๐Ÿ
3. A 30 minute date with my bike trainer, with loud music - โ€œGive Me Everythingโ€ is my song of choice this week. ๐Ÿ˜Š
4. And at the end of the day, watching an episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel with my family. ๐ŸŒธ
Four simple ways that have kept me connected to my sacred self this week. โœจ
What about you? What are some of the simple ways that you are nourishing yourself this week?

I promised the girls that if they make it through the winter I would start integrating foundation-less frames into the hive next year. I removed the foundation from all of these to prep for next yearโ€™s journey into treatment free, small cell beekeeping. .
.
Bees have shown over and over again that they prefer to build their own comb as opposed to building on foundation. The problem with foundation is that it locks bees into a specific cell-size, one that is much larger than what they would build naturally. The size of the cells affects the size of the bees that are born from those cells. When you switch the bees over to natural comb, they begin a process called regression, where over the next couple of generations, their cell size slowly reverts back to normal. Some people speculate that the commercial beekeeping industry increased cell size on purpose in hopes of increasing honey yield.
.
.
The leading experts in treatment-free beekeeping speculate that smaller cell size helps the bees to manage varroa mite populations. Smaller cell size decreases the development time of the larvae, in turn decreasing the reproductive time of the mites as well. Less opportunity to breed means less mites. Also, varroa mites originated only going after the drone brood in a hive. There is reason to believe that because our bees are unnaturally large, this is why the mites have started attacking worker brood as well. Smaller cell size helps to focus the mite population back on the drones where it belongs, as loss of drones has less of an adverse affect on the survival of the hive.

This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
~ Psalm 118:24

Busy, fuzzy bees yesterday, enjoying the warmth of the sun and bringing in lots of pollen.

The average worker bee lives for just five to six weeks. During this time, sheโ€™ll produce around a twelfth of a teaspoon of honey.

We might be dreaming about #honey.

We had an amazing year and as the cooler weather rolls in, we are reminded of how thankful we are for all of our fans and followers who have supported us.

So, thank you.
