Last Harvest of the year!

My 85 year old mother, Marcella helped me harvest honey on Thursday, October 10, 2013.
We had a great time working together. We extracted 35 pounds of honey.  She is just getting into bees and she got six sting. She learned a valuable lesson about the importance of proper bee protection.

We had to get her some Benadryl  for the itchy skin. She is a real trooper. She never complained about her swollen and painful wrists. She is going to be a very good beekeeper.
Thanks for the help Mama. Great Job!!
