Stephen spent almost 10 hours today removing a beehive from somebody’s shed. Of course, the boys and I had adventures trying to find a new bee supply store to bring him supplies as he ran out, but we finally found it. It was a beautiful day for a drive today, and the area we were driving in had a great view of Crowder’s Mountain.
Anyway, here’s a pic of the shed before he took the first board off:

He brought home a TON of honey – he’s thinking almost 75 pounds. Woohoo! We have a lot of work removing it from the comb in the next few days. It’s sitting in buckets on my dining room table at the moment. We’ll use the crush and strain method once we get started, but that probably won’t be until Monday. It’s too involved to think about doing on a Sunday!
We also gained two more regular beehives’ worth of bees from it all. He’ll probably head back on Monday to get the rest of the hive he left up there.
