This is our last giveaway for our 3rd Birthday Celebration we have been giving away goodies all month-long and I have enjoyed it so much the only thing is that I have gotten behind on blog posts between returning back to work and celebrations and football but it’s finally here “The Garden Hod Giveaway” that is handmade by my husband The Viking in my life!

I love mine and hope you love yours too!  Yours won’t look exactly like the one in this picture but it will be close;  this one is mine and he made it with an old rake handle but trust me yours will be beautiful too he is still putting the finishing touches on it!

    1. Thanks Mr. CBB…..:) I so wish I could include Canadian entries….but maybe I can do another seed giveaway soon! Hope all is well with you guys and that your September is starting out great!

      1. That would be lovely. September will be a busy month for us as the wife has surgery this month so I’ll be backed up. If you are interested in a guest post let me know as I’m trying to fill spots so I can take care of her. 🙂 ttys

        1. I would be happy to do a guest post for you! I love your readers they are awesome 🙂 I will keep your wife in my thoughts……just give me a deadline and I will come up with something good!

  1. I’m wondering what is the most common species of bee that is kept for beekeeping? We are looking into getting some beehives soon but are still rather new at it all. Thanks!

    1. Hi Georgie! I think the most common type of bee used for beekeeping is the Italian Bee however many folks up north like the Russian Bee as well. Thanks for your comment!

    1. You need your basic tools (smoker, gloves, jacket or veil)…..any hardware to house bees and this is such a great question we are going to do a blog post about it so we can expand on this answer to you because there are a lot of things mentally and with your property as well you need to prepare…thanks so much for your comment 🙂

    1. Yes we make our own pollen patties and we actually do supplement with that and we also supplement with inverted sugar water however please not we always leave plenty of honey stores on each hive. I can smell it all fall in the backyard……the bees are very happy! I put a link in our most recent beekeeping post about how we make our pollen patties under the Pinterest pins. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  2. How can you get honey from the comb without a fancy tool/extractor? Could you just break/cut the comb and let it strain slowly through a wire sieve?

    1. Linda yes you absolutely could another option is to uncap it, warm it up, and let it fall out by gravity and then you can save the comb and the bees can spend more energy storing their honey rather than working on wax! We are actually going to put away some comb honey this year!

  3. I just wanted to say thank you for all you do. I continue to enjoy your blog posts. And the Garden Hod is beautiful.

  4. What a lovely gift! A Garden Hod would be so useful in harvesting veggies and herbs. And I am so glad that I found your blog…I love it!

    1. Thank you so much Jeannette! I love my hod it is so handy! I wish you the best of luck in winning the hod and thank you so much for your comments 🙂

    1. Jeannette we supplement with inverted sugar water and pollen patties not everyone does but we have had good success with it.

I Love Hearing From All Of You! Thanks for sharing!
