Two weeks ago we picked up a new beehive. It came as a nuc. This is replacing the one we lost this winter.
It was my turn to name the beehive. I choose to call it Chai. Which is a Hebrew word that basically means life.
A common Jewish saying is “l’chaim!,” which means, “to life!.” It is said at many celebrations in anticipation of all the good things to come. I hope and pray that it does have a good life and lasted more than a season!
