Yeah ... Nah Bro .... no new gear this year ...... but ......   I was fiddling around with pollen traps today.  I figure I need to make 1000  traps to keep the bees entertained next summer.

Oh .... and the Can Am died again on the w/e .... so the missus went shopping for a Suzuki Quad to crank up the farming operation. The Suzi's seem to have quite good deals at the moment. And ..... Oh yes ..... this is the Biggy .... I've got a test ride  booked in on the Dream machine this week so I can catch up with Yesbutt for a latte in Murch when it is'nt raining.

So yes Maru .... we is getting new gear .... Fun gear !!

I hope you're not serious about the pollen traps. There are thousands slowly rusting away in innumerable beekeepers yards. Pollen seems to be the most easily oversupplied bee product there is and the boom and bust cycle happens about as often as a change in the Australian Prime Minister.

It always amuses me when I give a sample of  hand cream I have made, the first reaction is to smell it and comment. Maybe afterwards they will try a little.

Are the recipes focused on pure & natural, or do they require a chemists degree?

You need a Chemist degree just to read some of the recipes. I couldn’t even summons enough concentration to finish reading  the ingredient  list. End of the dream for me. 😜

Not so much diversifying ..... just curious ..... about making  propolis tincture, but looks like we will have to make a Moonshine Still first to get some grain alchohol  ..... can't be too hard ..... Main Man knows a lot about Moon shining.

Moonshine is Something we know how to do.

tinctures and complicated  soap recipes are beyond me. Better to let those that know make the lotions and potions and maybe we’ll just spend more time on the moonshine.
