Bee update

We visited the farm last weekend and as we were getting ready to leave, spoke to the neighbor across the street, the husband of the young women with small children. She was the one who threatened to bring suit in civil court because her child had gotten a couple of bee stings earlier this year.

He was very laid back. He said bees are a part of nature, he realizes they are not under our control, and that the bee hives behind their house belong to another beekeeper anyway. He thinks the ones in his yard might be theirs. He understands their bees might be flying over his house to drink water at our pond. He said that there were a lot of bees earlier in the year but lately it has not been a problem. He said essentially, "don't worry about it."

What a relief!
