These Gals are the Bomb!

Just a quick bee update...we did the final honey harvest for the year, removed two boxes from the top of the hive and then closed up the hive for the winter.  The girls have 45 lbs. of honey to keep them well feed until about March when they will again be able to find flowers on which to dine...But to our good fortune the girls made 20 additional lbs. of honey for us!  They are truely awsome! Especially when you consider that the bees have to hit two million flowers and travel about 55,000 miles to make 1 lb. of honey!  Thank you girls...see you in the spring!
