Greetings, Earth creature

OK, so maybe it isn’t an astronaut suit. But it does look like something from outer space when you’re not used to seeing it.

If you’re going to play dressup, you might as well include some other people in the fun.

Of course, you can use all the help you can get.

Especially when you’re on the cusp of undertaking something new and different.

Something that promises to be great fun – and a nice side business for the ranch.

It’s all quite exciting. We can’t wait to order our bees in a month or so and pick them up in the spring for placement in their new home. Did I say home? I meant homeS, plural: we’ll be starting with multiple hives on the ranch. Both better pollination and honey are in our future – the primary reasons for bringing bees to the ranch – and we’ll also get beeswax for things like candles, salves, and balms.
