|Day two of the great honey harvest of
2014. There's a lot of it! Yesterday we pulled 25
frames, today another 30. That's 5 hives down, 11
to go. It's a lot of work but fascinating and
satisfying. Sarah's got the touch and never gets
stung whereas I manage to find a way every time.
Today it was by not zipping my veil all the way
shut. Suddenly there was a buzzing in my beard and
an all-too-familiar fiery stab right on my chin.
As I scrambled to get out of my gear another got
me on top of the head. Who knows, it might have
been that bee in the lower right corner. Luckily
I'm not allergic but it's enough to wake me in the
middle of the night and leaves me literally
scratching my chin.
