find Your Own Honey Tree

Postby zelph » Wed Apr 09, 2008 1:22 pm

This is a sure fire way to have some fun while out on a hike. I've got to try this method once the bee's start foraging.

The Ol' Stumpjumper just bought 2 bee hives. It should be interesting to see how things progress and how many times he gets stung. I'll just pick mine up at Kroger and not worry about getting stung. ;) :lol:

do you remember the movie Fried Green Tomatos where she(the bee charmer) sticks her arm into a hive located in a tree?

Tell Stmpjumper I had 4 hives at a point in time if he needs some info.

I used to have a Hive too. Bees are interesting creatures. I had the Hive in a grove of Locust trees,
which makes some of the best Honey on Earth. The bees would fly past the locust blooms to a clover field
1/4 mile away.
Cheers!
