This past long weekend was all about honey for my family. It's a little earlier than what we had read...most seem to harvest in mid-August. But we had the weekend & everyone was home so it was the best time for all of us. It was a perfect weekend. The weather was a little overcast and a little cooler than usual. Just right for us having to wear the bee suits.
This was our first time & we had been watching video's and reading up on the process all week. All a little nervous but comfort comes in numbers. Annie & Mitchell took all the photo's and were very calm considering that they didn't have suits on. Nobody got stung. A very successful day indeed.
