Somehow I found myself with just one child in the house and we took it as an opportunity for this curious 7 year old to do some beekeeping apprenticeship on our sod roof apiary.   I have determined the bees are not making any extra honey for us this year.  Which is not atypical for a first year hive.  I put a honey super on a couple of weeks ago with high hopes, but now I am just going to set my hopes to winter over this hive so they have a solid foundation for year two.  Even though our bees do not put us in the honey business, we do learn from them.  I was happy to share this experience today with one of my children.  He seemed to enjoy himself as well!
