sooner than i thouht
« on: May 28, 2013, 10:32:15 PM »
well was going to take the rest of this year to study up and get equipment but the Lord had other ideas. I work for the prison system in Texas, and my unit of assignment has a big farm operation 11,500 acres in cotton this year, plus corn, milo and large veggie garden. was talking to farm manager about Bees this morning, he got real interested told me there were some old hives and equipment and wished somebody would work them. I told him I was his man, went and looked all boxes and frames are old, but there was 5 active hives bee suit, veil and smoker. He said he would have our cabinet shop build new boxes, order frames and foundation. All the honey mine, plus 50/50 on any splits made how cool.

good for you!!  that sounds like a heck of a deal.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Sounds like it was meant to be and all that free labor.  :)


Good luck.
