Talk about a memorable day!
Our friend Paul taught us how to do this without using machines or drums -
a simple kitchen knife, cookie sheet, and a 5 gallon bucket was all we needed.
In the process Molls endured two bee stings and I lost 5lbs of sweat in my Carhartts.
These were good trades considering we now have enough honey to make
homemade honey lavender ice cream for the whole neighborhood.
Currently our liquid gold is sitting outside under a tree so the wax can float to the top.
Soon it will be ready for lip balm and moustache wax making.
Have I mentioned how much we love keeping bees?
Happy Monday, brave ones.
"His labor is a chant, His idleness a tune; Oh, for a bee's experience ; Of clovers and of noon!"
