Bees wonderful Bees as seen on KDKA’s PTL
It’s been a wonderful season, the first I’ve had with bees. I teamed up with Steve Repasky, a master beekeeper from Burgh Bees.
He’s taught me all about how to care for these amazing creatures. I’ve always dreamed of having bees and it’s been great to watch them work.
I’ve benefited from all their pollination with an abundance of vegetables this year.
When I started working with Steve I told him all I wanted was the bees incredible pollinating ability. He could keep the honey, I thought it was a fair trade for everything he was doing for me.
Thanks god he talked me out of that agreement because the honey is unbelievable. If you think store bought honey is good, forget about it, find the real stuff.
If you’re interested in finding a source for TRUE honey or would like to learn beekeeping, click on this Burgh Bees link. The classes for beginning beekeeping are Saturday November 5th and 12th, 2011.
I’ll be in the class getting my official training, I hope to put a couple more hives in the garden.
Here are some of my favorite plants to help the bees forage. Hyssop is a great summer favorite of the bees and it’s indestructible. Asters are a great source of nectar in the fall. The bees love salvia, ‘May Night’ is one of my favorite perennial varieties.
Plant lots of flowers to bring in the bees and other pollinators.
