JP.. Its great that your wife is obsessed with sewing!!! I sew everything I was hoping there would be a way to sew bee boxes LOL but NOPE!

If you ever want to get your wife a "sewing" gift and if she doesn't have one already get her a serger/overlock machine....every sewer can use one of those I use mine ALL the time and it makes sewing things like clothese, blankets etc a breeze!!

Will have to check it out Lori, thank you! BTW that quilt you made for the college student is awesome!

Kathy, she's not selling anything....Yet  Wink Her first customer was her sister.  Smiley

Yes, same user name on backyard chickens.

I'm down to one black sex link, one SLW, one BO & one easter egger.

I actually had a small possum get into the coop one night. My wife said she wasn't closing the coop door when she let the dogs out because there was some type of hideous rat thing inside the coop staring down the birds.

It was a small & young possum. I got him to clinch onto a stick & brought him to the canal bank. Placed him on the ground and the little booger hissed and jumped at me! I told him most people would have killed his azz & that he should be grateful I didn't. Then I had to walk away laughing at myself for having a conversation with a possum!  grin

I assembled 200 frames and cut out 35 hive bodies yesterday and this morning I find myself staring at the clock wondering just how early I can fire up the saws without the neighbors lynching me. Better drink another cup or two of coffee first tongue  Would really like to cut out 50 more bodies today.

You never can be too prepared Ob. Get er done while you have the time!

Raining here lately, today 100% chance!

This coming Monday if the weather holds up I have a cut out to do in a trailer.

Our bees should begin swarming any day now. My first swarm call last yr was February 25. Got a feeling this yr will beat that.

I agree there JP, spring/ summer is my busiest time. So I trying to make sure I have too much equipment ready before then so I never have to rush and make needed equipment. Rushing and power tools makes for bad things happening lol.

So even though I only buying 10 nucs to start beeking my buld list is...
100 mediums
30 tops and bottoms
1000 frames
enough hive stands for 30 hives
30 feeder rims
10 nucs
10 swarm traps

I can't see any possible way I could run out of equipment and everything should be ready before swarm season starts here around May 1st. I'm going to hang the traps around April 1st and bees are scheduled to be here around May 1st ( depening on weather ofc)

 I had problems with the router yesterday so I only got 35 Hive bodies ready to assemble. In about fifteen minutes it will be time to get the lazy neighbor outa bed (10 am) and I think I will go ahead cut out all the bottom boards today. Hmm 15 minutes, I can probably get 2 more cups of coffee down in that amount of time and raise my goal to 50.

When I get a day warm enough to glue everything I want to have a huge stack of things cut out so I can take advantage. Looks like Wed evening might work for a little while after I finish working but no other days in the next ten will hit 47  angry

Beautiful... In our younger years, we took in teenage foster children on a 30 day emergency basis until they could be placed in a permanent home. We would have each one, boys and girls, sew a top together and then all of us would quilt it by hand. Then I would bind the border on a commercial machine. It was something special they had made themselves, and could go anywhere they were placed.
Iddee--that is so totally awesome! I love how on forums like this people may disagree in politics or other things but then so wonderfully discover something like this about another person. We're a new foster family ourselves, so I have a very special spot in my heart for those who have done it long before us Smiley

Neat thread.

My big jobs this month include helping my dad and husband build a lean-to greenhouse for my veggie farming operation, plus finally getting all my plans in order for getting certified organic.

I need to order about 70 chicks for fall laying. Also need to get the house deep cleaned before summer comes! As for tonight, I'm making maple-walnut biscotti for a trip with my sister to our brother's house. Can't wait!

Had my sister n law snap this shot this morning. Trying to stay ahead built 18 mediums, one deep & one deep nuc today, some frames and a few top covers. I don't think you can ever have too much equipment on hand considering one hive could easily wind up with five or more boxes in a good flow.

Sitting here drinking coffee (ofc), wondering if it is going to rain today or not. Was supposed to rain all day yesterday and never got a drop. I need to put the last coat of paint on all my equip as my bees arrive next Saturday.
