Spring Full Bee Hiving Moon
My bee pick up date and time has come. I get my gals around 2:30 pm on Saturday. I’m mostly ready, having prepared the hive boxes and the frames on Sunday. I need a couple of entrance reducers and a bottom board, but that’s no big deal. I have frozen pollen patties so I’m good there and the honey frames I’ve got in the hive boxes will feed my bees to begin, maybe enough to get them through to the dandelions.
This is a new season and I’m hopeful that my increasing experience will make it a successful one. We plan to sell some honey this year, at least enough to cover package bee costs and equipment, perhaps turn a little profit. That entails finding a bee-proof spot to do the extracting; I’m hoping the garage will work.
Went to see my dermatologist. No skin cancer. First time I’ve been checked, but, hey, this skin ain’t gettin’ more pliable. He says once a year from now on. Now on until. Now on until death, I suppose.
Another busy day with Leslie at 11:30, dermatologist and Woollies tonight. Heading out.
