Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

Flowering paradise

Summer is the lush season :) everything is in full bloom and bees are at their busiest buzzing here and there collecting pollen, nectar, water and propolis.
Even though the nature here offers a lot I decided to plant some more and help out our buzzing ladies which they obviously appreciate :)
 Borage is growing lush and strong. I have never seen such tall Borage. 
Honey and Bumble Bees are going nuts over its flowers :)
 I have planted a few big pots with Reseda odorata
which seems to be on the Honey Bees menu :)
Peach color pollen from Reseda odorata flower 
which smells lovely. I will plant this flower in huge 
quantities in the future :)


  1. Thanks for mentioning Reseda odorata flower...while I have tons of borage, I've never seen this other one. I'm going to have to figure out where to buy some seed. One of the sites I looked at said to plant it in the fall. Is that when you plant it?

    1. I planted it in spring and its growing well but im sure it can selfseed.
