Meet the Lady Beekeeper

I’m an engineer by day with a passion for crafts, cooking, and sewing by night.  I also, perhaps obviously, raise honey bees.  My initial desire to start beekeeping was to harvest honey for homemade mead (I’m also a brewer and renaissance nerd).  After 3 years with no surplus honey I am more into beekeeping for the bees rather than the honey.

    Hi Lexi,
    I have been reading your blog all evening and have loved it. Erin had shown me some posts in the past, but today she sent me the whole thing. You are awesome! In my opinion, Erin hit the jackpot when it comes to in-laws and sister-in-laws. Dan and I have considered raising bees. Next time we see each other maybe you can give us some advice.
    Take care,
    Karen Boschert

      Thank you Karen!! I would be happy to discuss bees anytime! I’m hoping this year is the year that I actually get some honey. Coincidentally I got a new package of bees today! I will post about them next week!

    Lexi, not that you need anything else to do, but might you update “Meet the Lady Beekeeper”? In addition to “engineer by day with a passion for crafts, cooking, and sewing by night”, you are a loving Mom, loving daughter, supportive spouse, Corgi owner/lover, New England homeowner, walking enthusiast (esp. w/ dog), terrific skier (water & snow) and so much more…

    Just a thought. Thanks for all you are and do.

    Love, Overton
