Each bee is in action, one leaving, one coming in with pollen, one checking, one watching...
In preparation for the end of the season, Mr. Bee brought out a scale and weighed a super full of honey and some individual frames. We're trying to make sure we have a more educated guess of how much honey we'll be leaving for the girls to try and make it through winter.
Soon I'll have some photos of our harvest and this year's honey. We're waiting for some higher temperatures so the honey runs faster.
At the beginning of September, Mr. T brought out his handmade picnic table (beautiful, isn't it?) just in time for us to host a small group of children and parents, all who were eager to learn about honeybees and beekeeping. I didn't ask permission to post any photos of the group, but you can see what Mr. Bee had set up before everyone arrived:
After the group left, we had a little picnic and enjoyed the gorgeous, sunny day.
