This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

The extracting workshop went well. Master Beekeeper Bob Sitko explained methods of pulling honey. He also talked about mite and nosema treatments. Wintering the hive was demonstrated also.
I demonstrated how to uncap, extract, filter and bottle honey. Everyone bottled a jar to take home.
Wendy served up some honey crinkle cookies, honey popcorn and honey limeade.
