Today I’m channeling Winnie the Pooh. There are literally buckets of honey everywhere and I’m one happy, sticky girl. Hopefully we will get about 50 kilos of the good stuff…still waiting for the final count but it looks like it has been a success. I’m no Beekeeper, that’s for sure, and knock on wood, so far the little buggers haven’t expressed their disapproval of my presence by stinging me either. So as far as I can see it is a win-win situation. I would just say that for now, I’m the Bee Assistant, you know, the one who does as little as possible then shows up in my bear suit to scoop up the golden reward, teehee.
But seriously, this was the easy part. A few weeks ago, when it was about 110 degrees/40 C, and sunny, I nearly passed out in my yellow bee suit after two gruelling hours of work on the hives. I called it quits and left my sister-in-law to finish the rest of the job a mere four hours later! I like honey, but NOT THAT MUCH!
