Summer Fun with Bees

Fun with Mirrors

See the beehives in the distance? Every hive got a one story addition in the form of a box we call a “honey super”. This is where the surplus honey will be later in the summer, and that surplus is what I’ll harvest.

July Apiary Visit

One last hive check before we begin harvesting this summer’s honey.

Hung out to dry. 85F on Sunday afternoon made for sweaty, sticky work in the apiary. I had to hang out the bee gear to dry before putting it away.
