* Check out my post below from last summer when I got to head out with Gee’s Bees for some beekeeping good times!
Earlier last week, I got to hang out with Matt from Gees Bees. (note: He and his wife Marianne are awesome.) The fact that they were willing to have me (a bee novice) tag along on their beehive route was so cool. And their story is inspiring – the way Gees Bees came together. It all started when they bought a home….that had bees…that had to be dealt with. So, they learned about bees, became fascinated, and the rest is history. Gees Bees was born. (ok, so there is more to the story, but that’s the summary you’re getting here.)
It took a few hives, but on our last stop of the morning, I got to see a queen bee! And she is a beast. And I saw a bee being born. And immediately get to work in its life job. So interesting!
Anytime I think of bees, I still hear this line in my head “Beeee yourself”.
