Faded Photograph

We've recently come across a couple of old photograph albums filled with memories of farm life in the 1940s and 1950s here on Crandall Hill.
This photo is of Arthur Metzger Sr. (on the right) and his father, J. Walter Metzger. They're tending to bees in the back yard, circa late 1940s. It's not surprising that there are still remnants of that beekeeping endeavor put into service in the 2018 version of beekeeping on the farm.
I  blogged about our honey bee adventure in 2017. In October last year, our Washington grandchildren enjoyed helping their Grandpa harvest honey.

Rowan was excited to use the smoker

Tasting is the best part!
