    Not here, had flurries this morning, glad I gave up farming years ago, working ground on an open tractor on a day like this was considerably less than fun.

    Send them over here. My bees are gone.

    When you catch one, put it in here and let them fill them Mason jars for you!

    Then all ya gotta do is train them not to store pollen in the jars, only the honey. Easy beezy, right?!?!!

    Yeah. I just don't see this working.

    I know folks that do something similar..makes for pretty jars but quite frankly it isnt practical for eating. 8)
