Had a good night with my friend Sean, first we went to dinner at My Thai, which was great food and lovely service, we took our own wine. We went home so I could lock up my chooks and ducks and we left the dogs at home. We walked to the wine bar which was packed with people our own age!!!  Whooo, we shared our table with a really friendly couple from near Riddles Creek.  Great night, good music and wonderful friendly company. Thanks all.

Old Gisborne Market

Recurring event, first Sunday of every month.


Join me at Old Gisborne Market, I will have my Aquadelectatio for you to consider. Great market with fruit, veg, flowers, jewelery, many other creative expressions. 


Had a good day, despite the wet weather. Weird watching people walking in the rain in their shorts and thongs, and other with huge umbrellas, one couple had matching brollies.

Taking Honey from my Hives

Taking Honey from my Hives

Today I am working with Annee, who I bought three functioning bee hives from and together we are going to take the full frames out of the hives and replace them with fresh empty frames. The honey-full frames will go into plastic tubs which close on four sides, this eliminates any bees from getting in, or trapped bees from getting out, this would be a disaster while driving home. 


The three hives were in excellent condition, we were able to take 6 of the 'ideal' or half frames from the first hive, as well as a larger frame from the lower box, which tends to be used to make 'brood' or baby bees, it is possible to see which cell will become a drone bee, which is the male, as well as to store pollen. The second hive, we took all eight 'ideal' frames from the top box and no frames from the lower box as they were all being used to make brood. The third box was very similar to the second.  


I got stung twice, although, I was wearing the full apiarists protective gear. Once I put my chin too close to the face mask and a bee stung me and the other time I got stung on the leg, cause my suit, an old one of Annee's, was not quite protective enough. 


There is a short video in the Gisborne Gallery, if you are interested, but once we are suited up, we can't use the camera.

Woodend Village Market

Today I had a stall at the Woodend Village Market, I was selling my Aqua-delectation again, or water fantasy art. It was a lovely day, quite a few people enjoyed my creativity, but thought they could do the same themselves. Of course, we are taught to ask, Yes, and why have you not done it?  But I refrained, instead I asked for a $5 Intellectual Property donation, which was always just laughed at. Anyway, I got to know Tim, next-door to me, with strawberries and jams from Black Forest Farm.

Bottling Jen's Gisborne Honey

Tomorrow I am taking all my honey containers, Annee's centrifuge, jars, and other paraphernalia to my brother's commercial kitchen to bottle the first crop of Jen's Gisborne Honey. 


Also, I am picking up my mother Judith, in Williamstown, on the way to Dromana from Gisborne. I will be taking lunch for everyone, roast pork, fresh bread, apple sauce and mustard as well as some pickled beetroot, humous, pesto, tiny tomatoes from the markets, and falafel, because some people might decide they don't want to eat meat. Hopefully my nephews and sister-in-law will be there to enjoy lunch with Judith and me. 


If you want to buy some fresh bottled honey it's $18 per kilogram, but you can buy in smaller jars. Let me know by phone, 0438733165 or PM, via Messenger. See Gisborne Gallery for a photo of my proposed label.
