Beekeeping at Bill's

I went over to my beekeeper friend Bill's place last Thursday to learn how to start shutting down the hives for the winter. I hope to get my own hives in the spring.  Meanwhile it has been greating helping Bill a few times this summer and learning how to check the hives and extract honey.  They are amazing creatures and the honey straight from the hive is incredible!  It's like tomatoes from your garden vs. store bought ones.
