i barely use this account anymore because no one cares also i use my anonymous account wayyyy more hah fooled ya 🌟🌈🦋💕💘🤩 anywaysss i see more and more people waking up and realizing that ecology is so important- finally. if only people realized that it all starts with the choices they make- yeah, companies are a big part of the consumerism/ over-consumption problem, but it’s up to people to decide which products they truly need, and which ones they don’t. do you really NEED that box of Oreos, over packaged, over produced, and that uses child fucking labor?! no. it all starts with US.
im so tired that i can’t properly express my ideas from today. ill be back soon with more coherent shit- gnight.
Bonito y frio #jueves aqui uno de los usos del #propoleo en la colmena estos oyos los hacemos para alimentar las abejas, en este caso se olvido cerrarlo y ellas eficientemente usan el propoleo para cerrarlo a tal grado de que ellas esten agusto de poder defender la entrada y no entre tanto frio ni se se les escape mucho el calor por ahi 😊🤗🐝🐝🐝 Propoleo: Los propóleos son unas mezclas resinosas que obtienen las abejas de las yemas de los árboles, exudados de savia u otras fuentes vegetales y que luego procesan en la colmena como sellante de pequeños huecos, en ocasiones mezclado con cera y para barnizar todo el interior de la colmena.
Uso del Propoleo: El Extracto de Propóleo o también llamado própolis tiene varios usos, pudiendo ser utilizado para acelerar la regeneración de los tejidos ayudando en el proceso de cicatrización y de desinfección de heridas o quemaduras, para secar las espinillas, tratar el dolor de garganta, la gripe, la sinusitis, la amigdalitis y ayudar a tratar problemas respiratorios como la tos seca o con flema.
Este extracto natural posee acción cicatrizante, antiinflamatoria y bactericida, protegiendo, regenerando y calmando la piel
Maze or beehive? What do you see? The bees made these beautiful patterns inside their hive using beeswax and propolis to seal up the unwanted spaces and gaps between the frames and the roof of the hive. While it’s certainly amazing to look at, this wax-and-propolis substance is pretty much like ‘bee glue’ and makes it very hard to do a hive inspection since everything is stuck together!

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
Or in this case-honey!
Did you know that most first time beekeepers quit in the first two years?
Beekeeping is not for the faint of heart.
There is a steep learning curve and the only way to really learn is to jump in with both feet and make ALL the mistakes.
In the past 2 years we’ve made just about all of them, but we are not deterred.
We keep arming ourselves with more knowledge and experience and we have some strategies for keeping our new bees alive through the winter next year!
While we will still just have 2 hives this year, my husband is planning for 2 more the following year.
I’m one lucky girl that he has chosen to dive into beekeeping with me. You really need a partner for observation and heavy lifting!
Next up? Making lip balm and maybe salve with the wax comb from the honey uncapping!
@wondergrottole ...kindly inform Rocco that on March 4th, I will be registering for “INTRODUCTORY BEEKEEPING” workshop so that I may be able to assist him this summer. The session which begins in May includes lessons in the bee yard and topics will include: basic honey bee biology, beekeeping equipment, working in the bee colony, and harvesting & extracting honey. The course is offered through the Ontario Beekeepers' Association. Amo le api e il miele!!! @wondergrottole@airbnb@italiansabbatical@rocco_filomeno@grottole
Just out here today and almonds. Decided to check on the bees. They’ve already grown a few frames, and things are looking really good. Going to have some nice strong colonies coming into March. #beekeeping
Bee Frames ~ Cadres d'abeille ~ frames, frames and more frames. We're so excited for spring splits and swarms. Everyone tells us, if they were a bee, they'd pick our farm as home 😁 I hope our girls feel that way! We sure do love them 🐝🌼 ~ we hope you have a great day wherever you are 👨🏻🌾👩🏼🌾🐶 #weloveourbees#savethebees#maisondejardin
Beehives on a tree platform in Ikizdere, in the Black Sea region, Turkey. Turkish beekeeping in trees is one of my favourite beekeeping traditions. It's dangerous-- but also bear-proof. Regional beekeeping practices are disappearing around the world, including in Turkey. As bee populations decline and small producers are squeezed by industrial-scale agribusiness, and as the efficiencies of 000s of Langstroth and similar hives in huge apiaries diplace lower-yielding traditional beekeeping practices; the old ways disappear and make way for international, higher-yielding beekeeping technologies. But is this trend working for the bees? Maybe not. Maybe smaller bee yards, where beekeepers pay more love and attention to their hives, and are culturally connected in complex and meaningful ways— maybe this is a more sustainable way forward. Anyway, expect much more of this thinking in the next few months-- as the honey season winds up here my research and writing season begins : ) Let’s go visit these bees and these trees @plenexis !
I don’t know how I’ve been so lucky to have caring thoughtful friends but I am so very lucky! 🐝❤️🐝. An update on our bees; today the BeeGees are out flying. No sign of Susan Bee Anthony’s girls but it’s only 43 degrees out and I’m hoping they’re staying warm inside.
These gifts will bring me some bee keeping luck hopefully. Monica gave me these adorable mini My Little Ponies & they look like shaped honey. 😍 Angela surprised me with some bee necklaces. The queen bee with the A must be me lol. Thank you!🤗❤️🐝 I love them.
I also got myself some lucky Buzz Off socks. #bees#beekeeping#mlp#grateful
SWEET CHRIST, THEY'RE ALIVE!!!!!! I knew I had lost 1 hive, but I was holding out hope for this one.... Lo and behold, on a rare warm sunny day, I saw movement in front of the entrance. I ran out to the yard in my slippers to see, and there they were!!! Alive!!!! I'm elated!!! My heart!!! Guess who's getting a pile of fondant today??? YOU GIRLS!!! 😍❤💗💕😍❤💗💕😍❤💗💕💗💕😍 #beek#beekeeper#beekeeping#urbanbees#cincybees#savethebees#overwinteredbees
