Shopping List

Wow, this month has really flown by.  I realized yesterday that my bees arrive on Saturday, and while I’ve thought about them a lot since I put that check in the mail, I’m not quite ready for them.

So today I went down to my garage after work and looked through my pile of bee equipment, cleaned up some of it, tossed my bee suit in the washer, and made a list of the things I still need to buy before I pick up my bees on Saturday.  Here’s the shopping list:

  1. 10 pounds of white sugar (used to make sugar syrup so the bees have something to eat)
  2. 1 grill lighter (for lighting the smoker)
  3. 1 bag of hamster bedding (the aspen kind makes great smoker fuel)
  4. Spray bottle (for sugar water)
  5. Mini marshmallow (to plug the queen cage)

I guess I’m going shopping tomorrow!
