A new farm trend-Spectator Chores

dead bees on a ledge close up

Anna in her bee keeper suitOur bees took advantage of the recent warm snap to do some house cleaning by bringing out the dead bees that expired recently.

Bee keeping sure is easy when all you have to do is take a few pictures of your wife doing the actual work and then let the bees do the rest.

Of course I help when it comes to eating the honey, which makes it a sweet spectator chore that I recommend to all homesteading husbands out there.

I'm happy to help out with the honey eating. I'm an expert honey eater.

That's precisely why I'm thinking of adding hives --- everyone seems to be in love with our honey and I think I might have gotten carried away and given away too much! I don't want to be buying honey in March, but I also really love having lots of extra to pass around to friends and family.
