Let the Goldenrod Flow Begin
Since I suddenly had this incurable need to flee the air conditioning and put on a bee suit in the 95 degree plus high humidity weather I got a few things done I been putting off. One of my new swarm hives down at the Orchard Apiary needed a new brood chamber and I had to mow around the Garden hives as well.
You just know it was an emergency bee operation or I wouldn't have subjected myself to all that heat. It isn't quite as bad as running around in full military MOP gear. At least the bee suit isn't lined with rubber, but it's close.
Ya know what a bee suit needs? A rubber hose so you can use a gas mask ready canteen cap with it. Hmmmmmm.
Anyway the Goldenrod is blooming down at the Orchard hives. They are about five miles South of my other hives and the Goldenrod hasn't bloomed up here yet. It should be a good Fall flow this year.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!
