The "Girls" are making Honey

We have been very busy at Sasserfrass Hill Bee Farm. The "Girls" are hard at work coming and going all over the bee yard and beyond. We went through the hive with honey supers on Saturday, Rick helped me with the heavy lifting. The honey supers weights close to 80 pounds. They have capped off lots of the supers and I am waiting for them to finish each one.

We have gone over and checked several new beekeepers bees. It looks like everyone will have an excellent spring harvest.

We are as busy as the bees with speaking engagements, making lotion bars and lip balms, graduations, class reunions, plantings and spring chores.

We will post more later, look at the time ...where does time go???

Bee Well,

The Sasserfrass Hill "Girls" make the 6pm News CH 12

We planted flowers, cut the grass, did the weed eating, cleaned the bee shed and we were all excited to see News Channel 12 pull up to shoot a news story on the bees of Sasserfrass Hill.

I met a cute, young reporter, Carter Coyle at the MCG 's Earth Day a couple of weeks ago, she ask ed if she could do a story on the bees. She called yesterday and came over today and did the story.

Carter was tough, she got a sting on the cheek while we were shooting the story. She was brave and had a great attitude. I apologized for the sting, but she said she expected at least one sting.

I was wishing for the girls to be extra gentle . . .

Carter said she would send the link as soon as she got the web story posted. I will pass it along as soon as I get it.

We had fun today.. and maybe someone will see the story and get some bees or at least plant some wildflowers. The "Girls" will appreciate it.

Bee Well,

Ms Deb
