Another great weekend in south Florida
« on: October 27, 2008, 10:14:41 AM »
I've been making some nucs and selling a few of them to beekeepers through Brendhan in south Florida. It is a great excuse for a weekend get away and hang out in a tropical climate. I left West palm sunday with temps in the 80's got home to a frigid 62 when the high at home was only 70.
 
Here are the nucs from the first trip.


We just had unloaded everything waiting for some people to show up for a possible demonstration.

Dallas, how wonderful!!!  You are certainly going gangbusters with your bee business, good for you, yeah!!!  Those pictures were pretty ding dang cool.  I loved the one of Austin, he is one fine looking little man, and I see he is a fan of Guitar Hero,  ;) :) :) :).  Cool pics, can't wait to see some more.  I bet it was wonderful to get down to a warmer climate, eh?  Have these most wonderful days, Cindi

Now we just have to tell all those bees to get to work and start filling up those nucs so I can put stacks on those.  :evil:

Dallas, there is something very appealing to the second picture, the one with the shed in the background.  I keep looking at it, and I just find it so interesting, no clue why, but it is a most beautiful and great picture, I love it.  The green grass, the trees, the blue sky, I just can't say enough about it.  Have a most wonderful and great day, Cindi
