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?

Bees working flowers in August

On the river bank this plant (?) is blooming heavily

Another plant is attracting Honeybees with its flowers. Its a low growing
plant with fleshy leaves. Have to ID it. Will try and collect the seeds.

  1. Not sure about the first plant. Hard to tell about the leaves, but could it be Joe Pye Weed?

    The third flower with the starry flowers and fleshy leaves looks like some variety of sedum. There are many kinds that get to be different sizes, shapes, and colors. But they bloom this time of year, and bees really seem to like them.

    1. As always you are right on the money Julie :) Thanks.
      I will collect some seeds from that plant and propagate it some more.
