Yum honey :)

I was figuring out my timing for Saturday morning, and I realized that Google Maps now has the picnic shelter/gazebo labelled, for those who are coming for the first time. It is called Henri Latreille Shelter, Indian Creek Road, Ontario. GPS coords are 45°22'33.6"N 75°14'33.5"W

Red Balloons this year is what I have, and the count down begins, looking forward to seeing some of you tomorrow and everyone on Saturday..

weather is all over the place, we do have a fully covered shelter in case of rain, but heads up, it might have rain on the weekend, but do prepare for hot weather as well

Looking forward to it...we should be at Whispering Pines sometime around 3PM.
We have an awning on the trailer, and usually have a 10 x 12 tarp or two.
If we need to put up a rain shelter around the campfire, I'm sure we can pool resources and figure something out.

Hey all

Just a quick heads up about my beekeeping presentation...

I had originally hoped to bring a small observation hive with me so you folks could see some bees hard at work. However, with this brutal drought, my bees have suffered enough stress and pulling even just a few thousand bees out of a hive at this point will hurt overall colony health and definitely my honey harvest.

I will be bringing a hive and plenty of equipment and tools to show you all, as well as some printed fact sheets. AFTER the event, I'll try to put together a google doc of the information i cover, for anyone who is interested in beekeeping can access.

This drought has affected so many. I'm more than sure people will totally understand. No point in taking any chances with your bees.

No joke. It's getting serious. Already the worst of the decade, and if it continues into early Sept it will be the worst in my lifetime.

What a year to begin depending on agriculture for a living. Sheeesh!
