I’ve never been to Runge but I can’t wait to go the next time Mark and David need to check on the bees. The two hour drive south is farther than we normally place hives but this location is a special and temporary project. You see, there’s Texas Clover down there. A big ole field of it (that’s the picture above this paragraph) and the beekeepers want to see how the bees will do. We’re hoping they survived the hot drive down there okay and that they’ll do fine. Glad to see some bees on the Clover, which is lovely in both white and yellow varieties. Hope they are our bees!
Here are the bees all set up and ready to go. Make us some good Texas Clover honey, girls!
