BEE DANCE OF THE HONEY BLONDE!!!
If you were passing R&C Dairy and Farmstead late Tuesday P.M. and happened to see a full figured blonde woman, peeling off her hat and shirt, waving her arms in the air, shaking her head back and forth and hopping on one foot then the other.........I have no idea who that could have been. It could have been someone who just happened to be passing through the orchard, checking out the peaches, and was not aware that the bee hives had recently been checked. Someone who had recently eaten a peanut butter and honey sandwich, and somehow had gotten a little sticky in her hair and on her shirt sleeve. An innocent bystander that did not realize that guard bees take their job so very seriously, and a scout bee can smell a hint of honey or nectar, far, far, away. I am sure that whoever it was, will be a little more careful going into bee territory after they have been disturbed. The berry picking is going wonderfully well. We have met lots of newcomers to the farm. The strawberry season should last another three or four weeks. We will be picking Thurs. Fri and Sat at 9:00 am. Sunday we will start at 11:00. The market will be open from noon until 4:00 pm on Thurs. Fri. and Sat. We will have picked berries available in the market. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
