These are long sleeve t-shirts found on Amazon. Super light weight alternative to my bee jacket. I purchase a 4 pack made by Hanes. I ordered 2XL and sleeves are a loose fit. Using blue 5 mil nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight the gloves wrap outside the wrist covering the sleeves. Wore one today and no problems at all. I was way more comfortable.

We attended a workshop on natural beekeeping yesterday. Awesome speaker and great information. Several books were obtained at a discount. Here is a link.

Outer 2x6 boxes offer wind barrier as well as insulation wall creating a hollow tree environment for the hive boxes. Vented quilt covers with pine shavings sot under outer cover. board has been inserted under bottom board to allow minimal ventilation while quilt cover allows slow passage of warm humid hive air through the top.Will see if it works by spring. Will be inserting candy board shortly.

Just finished my first 5 frame nuc box. Followed the design used by David from you tube channel "Barnyard Bees". Wide inner cover ventilates and has room for rapid feeder allowing syrup or dry sugar to be fed and also provides ventilation. Simple outer cover just a tad wider and longer so water drips off. Will paint outside surfaces.

Our very first comb honey harvested during hive maintenance after being away for a week. We attached most of it to frames for bees to recycle but kept this small amount. So good!

Several people stopped by our booth on Saturday asking about availability of bees. Here is a source of bees taking package orders for shipment until May 23rd. I'm sure there are others as well. Will be picking up our nuc on Sunday.
