    Hello, very cool Eckel brothers!
    Your mom told us about your beekeeping and your website and what you’re doing is just as amazing as I thought it would be.
    We love what you’re doing and in an aunty way, “are so proud of you!!”
    Your mom filled us in on you and all of your family. So glad you are all doing well.

    Bill has started keeping bees with the help of a young homeschooling beekeeper last spring. We were so happy they survived the cold winter. We haven’t harvested anything yet, but I’m sure the honey will be coming soon. We have flowers that bloom from February (witch hazel) to November/ sometimes Dec. so they are happy little ladies.

    He will contact you on his own( he loved your site, too, but will probably get right to the point and ask you all sorts of tech questions!

    That’s all for now,
    The Drennens
