A Place For My Bees

After doing some research and talking with the folks at Isabees I figured out where I’ll put my first two hives.  While it looks like there’s nothing but pasture there now, I’ve put pine trees (shortleaf and pitch loblolly) to the north of where the hives will go.  I cut a path through the tall grass to get there.  I’ll put the Washington Hawthorns to the west so some years in the future they will provide a little shade in the afternoon.  To the south is part of our leach field so I’ll put clover and goldenrod there.  I can’t do much else because of the pipes underground but the area should be naturally fertilized!   🙂
