Look who loves me now!
Redford hung out with me in the garage today and "helped" me extract honey.
Yes, that's him "helping"!
He has come along way in the past few weeks. He sat on my lap for a good ten minutes today.
He's always kneading with his paws, or gently grabbing my hand, or nibbling on my fingers. He's a bit like Emerson the suckler, but less obsessed.
He has extra toes!
Love... the feeling is mutual!
And then he fell asleep. He really seems to trust me now.
He's a great cat.
He quite likes the garage now, unlike when he first showed up and was locked in there for two weeks and wouldn't come near me!
I am finally, kind of, sort of nearing the end of honey extracting. I am taking my last 14 honey supers off tomorrow.
Over 500 lbs of honey sitting in buckets in the garage right now, waiting to be bottled! I'm well up over 1,000 lbs at this point. Incredible.
And I took this photo to show how wax can be quite different in colour depending on what the bees are into. The top was ix very yellow, the bottom very white.
The last few batches of honey I extracted were almost fluorescent yellow, and a mix of goldenrod and alfalfa. Yes, alfalfa is still blooming in our hay fields!
And here's my Redford enjoying the sun the other day...
Hope you are having an excellent weekend!
