Bees enjoying their new homes
That is indeed what you think it is. A pretty time-consuming pandemic hobby. Driving 20,000 bees home in your car is perhaps not for everyone. But it does give you something to do.

That is, until you put the bees into their new home, and then there's not all that much to do most of the time.

But the preparation, so much work. J's work. J's hobby, I'm just here to wood chip the sticks that fall off the trees.

We just got some wood chips to fill out the rest of the bee area, and fill in some of the holes. It's looking pretty snazzy.
