I thought I would go ahead and plow up a spot to put the hive and plant white clover all around the bees. I picked up two pounds of clover seed from Southern States. I was amazed that clover produces its own fertilizer due to a bacteria that lives in its roots. You can't just plant seeds. You have to put out seeds that are coated with the bacteria.
We decided to paint the hive white to keep them cool. We plan to put the bees in the hive Friday. We will have the camera rolling! I hope it goes well.
