As many of you may have noticed, here at the Ike's, we are successfully ending our first summer with bee hives. We have been very fortunate to have a lot of equipment donated to us and to have bee keepers in our community willing to come out and help me in this endeavor. One such person is the State of Iowa's one and only apiarist, Andy Joseph.

On Saturday, August 23rd, Andy held his annual end of year field day out at the bee yards at Chichaqua Bottoms. This involved a bunch of bee keepers, young and old, experienced and not, observing and helping in harvesting honey frames and checking for varoa mites. As part of this experience the Ankeny Ike's hosted the second portion of the field day at our Chapter House. We had a great crowd gather for a honey themed potluck (my honey oatmeal pies were a big hit!) and then we all got to learn how to harvest our honey off the frames. It was a great day and I hope more of you will join us for future bee events!
