Workin' the Bees

Today I split my hive and put a new queen in the 2nd box. Notes to self:
Pack smoker better
Don't leave suit in the front porch after thousands of angry bees let loose pheromones all over it.

All in all I feel like it was a good morning's work even though I couldn't find my original queen. She's laying eggs like a champ, even if they are all mean.

I Have Soap Cured!







Come See Us Saturday!

This Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm some of the goaties and I will be at the Yakima Co-Op. Come see us! We will have some soap available for sale.
The Co-Op has their annual Customer Appreciation Days happening. I enjoyed myself there last year with the Central Washington Bee Keepers. This year they asked me to represent dairy goats with our own booth.
Fun!
