Well. Like I said, it’s just me and the dog here in eskimo land. I need a parrot.
People have about booked me up already wanting bees for the Spring. I hope I can fill all the orders, this weather is pretty tough on bees….they need to stay warm all year, and with -7 degrees tonite, gonna be a tall order for them. Makes me wish I was still in Uganda. Nice and Warm.

The best year ever for the bees, I bottled over 600 pints of honey, some of the best I ever tasted!
We got back from Uganda, where we were teaching the Mountain people in the Rwenzoris more efficient beekeeping techniques. Suffice to say it was extremely interesting. I posted some videos here: Wore me out, though….4 hours a day in the “class”, and then the rest of the day in the beeyards, which were located like everything else: over a few mountains and then in a valley. By foot. Oy vey. But felt good to be doing something really worthwhile
