I did the same yesterday but I got lucky , went to grab some scrap 2x4s out of the the box of an old pickup and when I noticed the nest my hand was about a foot away and they were mad. no idea how I didn't get stung they were black hornets . The bees are busy at work again, no idea where they went for a while but probably a canola field nearby. The clover is just buzzing and they are busy in the garden and flowers again.
My son does a lot of farm fun stuff with the kids and they decided to get a colony of bees last spring. He was mostly joking when he asked the kids who was going to be the bee keeper and middle grandson who is 5 years old going on 16 said he wanted to so they only bought one suit to fit him and he is proud of his new job. When he outgrows it there are two more boys behind him that hopefully will get use out of it. They have a mentor and bees are doing good .
This is scary as fuck. That's a high octane face planter/two day hangover/pregnancy disguised as a few wee nips:Made some aronia liquor that is surprisingly good...
50% aronia juice + 50% sugar, mix and heat just enough to dissolve the sugar
mix sugar juice 50/50 with vodka for 20% alcohol liquor (also used some 50/50 vodka and everclear for 34% alcohol final product)
If you are canning, you may want to adjust the pH.I tried Brandywine tomatoes for the first time and I'm hooked. They grow big and are sweet with less acid than normal so I can eat them like they are going out of style and not get a canker sore. They are so lean that I had to add a little water to make salsa.
