I was in my bee yard the other day, when I saw some faded writing on one of my hive bodies. It was in my mentor's hand writing. It said: requeened 04/92. Wow, I didn't realize I had a deep that old. Looking at that brought back memories of my mentor, now passed away ten years, and my first days of beekeeping working with my mentor. Anyone else out there have a piece of equipment that should have been past it s prime, but is still functional? Or maybe it's not even functional, but you just can't bear to part with it? Like my hive body I got from my mentor, I think I will hang it on the wall of my shed this fall.
