Hi. My name is Bruce Jenne and I have decided to start a blog about a passion of mine, beekeeping.
I am in awe of these little creatures and am fascinated by them every time I crack open a hive. It is amazing to me how thousands of tiny insects can work in perfect harmony to reach a certain goal. Humans can learn a lot from honey bees. Each individual bee plays a role in the overall health of the colony. They say each honey bee is responsible for the production of only 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey during it’s entire life, yet a hive can produce many pounds of honey per year!
There are so many interesting things to learn and share. I do not pretend to have all the answers nor do I claim to be an expert. I simply want to share my thoughts and experiences with you. I have made and will make many mistakes along the way. Some of my experiences have been exhilarating, and some have been frustrating and even depressing. One thing is sure though about beekeeping; It is almost always an adventure. There are ups and downs along the way but it is most definitely worth it!
I hope you will join me on this journey and learn along with me as I continue to discover how to best manage these fascinating creatures. Until now I have kept bees as a hobby and tried to learn all I could about honey bees and how to manage them. Now I feel like I am poised to turn this thing into a business. At least that is what my goal is at this point. Of course with bees, as with most things in life, nothing is certain. That is part of the fun!
Let’s do this!
