It was a lot of fun…. almost makes me want to go to a church. Of course, couldn’t we just go to all the picnics? 🙂

OK…. add this to my list of “things I want to build”. A foot powered lathe!

I was really nervous going into the brood box for the first time, so here I am happy to have survived. Z, standing only a few feet away and photographing, asked, “What in the world are you worried about? You are covered from head to toe in protective gear!” Yesterday, Z and I opened the hive to put the feeder back on without wearing gear or smoking the bees. They got a little agitated. One killed itself trying to sting Z (only got his sleeve). We decided that, while maybe no gear is ok for this gentle hive, we will at least prepare the smoker.
