Fun Fact Friday

     One of our homesteading adventures has been beekeeping. We’ve had bees for about 6 or 7 years and truly enjoy it. There are so many neat things about honey bees to learn about. One fact I thought interesting when we first started out was that the worker bees in the hives are actually female. The males, which are larger than the worker bees, have the easy life. Well, at least until they are needed by the Queen Bee. The Queen Bee will mate with the male bees, aka Drones, and then the male bees die.

     Ok, so that was more than one fact, but now you’ve learned something new about honey bees.

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
