How Marriedwithbees got started:  Back in 2017 I was not happy with my garden’s squash output.  I heard that gardeners who keep bee colonies can sometimes double or even triple their output thanks to increased pollination.  My husband has been fascinated by bees since he was a boy, so when I suggested that we look at getting a bee hive, he jumped in with both feet.  We started with two nucs in April 2018.  Our colonies grew, and we split our strongest colony to start a third in June 2018.  This blog is for newer beekeepers or non-beekeepers fascinated by bees.  We don’t have all the answers, but we are happy to share what we learn along the way.
