Re: Today in the Apiary
Just some random musings. I drove home today from Charleston (67°F) watching the temps all day. Planned on getting out in the apiary as I was going to be home an hour earlier than usual. Ha! 53° but windy as could be. Girls were not flying and I was not going to intrude. So instead I finished filtering the 15# of wax I bought from Harbo Bee Co. Amazing how clean solar melted wax is right out of the melter. Anyhow, finished that up and ordered the 2# block mold that I am going to use as a collector in my own, soon to be built, solar melter. Winter is the time to plan and get things done. In two more months, I'll be be too busy with the bees for this kind of stuff.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
