I met Understudy too
« on: March 05, 2007, 08:34:37 PM »
This past weekend was a blast.  I went to south florida with my mentor to work his bees in a pollination contract on a farm there. At the end of the day I got to have a wonderfull dinner, great conversation and met some great people.  Here are some of the pics.


Here we are;


Here is Austin learning from Mr. Thomas' son how to make up a nuc.

I almost forgot.  It was so hot down at that end of the state and i  got sunburn on my face.  On my way home about halfway [orlando] got some gas and it was freezing, 30 degress at the house.

darn that dude on the right looks fishy. I would stay away from him.
 :lol:

I had an awesome time with pdmattox.  It was nice to exchange information with another beekeeper, especially with one who on his way up. I have some awesome cucumbers in my salad last night. :)
