Season Winds Down, but We’re Gearing Up!

Change is in the air here in east Georgia. The mornings have been cooler and the days not quite as blistering hot as they have been for the past couple of months. This past week I have been checking my hives and making sure they have adequate stores for Winter. I even harvested a frame of honey from 3 of my stronger hives.

Yesterday I bought a trailer load of old equipment from my mentor, Mr. Bobby Colson of B&G Honey Farm in Register, GA. In the deal, we acquired one strong hive and 80+ medium supers with frames. During the upcoming Fall and Winter, we will be going through all the equipment refurbishing and culling what cannot be salvaged.

I am really looking forward to next season. I am looking forward to adding more colonies and hopefully bringing in a nice harvest. Soon I hope to post some pics of the honey we harvested from the hives this year as well as come pics of the equipment we just acquired.
