My hives are scheduled to ship out on Saturday headed for California. I have been a little anxious to take a peek. I haven’t checked them since they were insulated and wrapped two months ago. I was quite happy with what I discovered.
As I think back upon the many experiences I have had while working bees there is one day that stands out as the most memorable. Just when I thought nothing else could go wrong, this unbelievably crazy day took on a life of its own as my brother and I battled hunger, thirst, fire and a host of other challenges, barely making it home with a full truckload of honey supers.
