My beekeeping adventures are unfolding well. I've had to invest in some more "bee stuff" as time goes on. Besides just the hive parts and frames I've also got things now like honey processing tools and such.
Real soon I'll be extracting honey from the second-to-the-top layer shown here. Excited to taste this honey. It's pretty cool to invest time/money/and effort into things that give back.
I've opened the hive now 4 times and hadn't gotten stung during that process. Until today...I was innocently working in my garden and BAM! bee sting. Guess she felt threatened or nailed me as she flew by...or both. Ow though.
