2016.08.06 -- BUSY

The in-laws have been up, so we've been busy.  Here's a few pictures to catch you up...

I bought thirteen new chickens...

They are Black Stars, about seven weeks old, and should start laying eggs by December.  I found them in a Craigslist posting, and had to drive down to Woodruff and meet a woman in the Walmart parking lot to get them.

Last Wednesday, we went to the Loon Day Art and Craft Show...

Hoo boy!  Was it hot.

I collected some rent from the bees yesterday...
honey--20160805

That's a quart jar and holds three pounds of honey.  I got that and another pound off one frame.  I'll post some pictures of the messy-way to get honey off a frame in a few days.
