It has been too long since a post has been made on LetMBee.com. I apologize for the delay. I went on a two week vacation salmon fishing on Lake Michigan out of the Manistee River. The camp ground I stayed in advertised Wi-Fi, but it was unavailable both of the weeks I was there. I found a public library in Manistee that had Wi-Fi, but I was too busy fishing, cleaning fish, and canning to leave.
We boated somewhere between 85 and 100 fish in the two week trip. The species consisted of mainly Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho Salmon and Steel Head, along with a couple of Lake Trout. The fish were smaller than normal this year with an average weight around 10 pounds. We caught nothing above twenty pounds. I canned right at 100 pints while there. I have probably 30-40 more pints worth frozen waiting for a canning day.
One windy day I took a trip to the weir that is situated on the Little Manistee River. On the way there I stopped and visited with a husband and wife bee-keeping team that had a honey stand on the side of the road. They were currently out of stock. The beekeepers told me that honey production was not very good in their area this year, but there would be a limited crop. They were going to spin honey within the next two weeks.
There is a little update as to where I have been. I will try to avoid these long absences in the future. It looks as though this weekend will be a time for chicken processing. Honey supers will be coming off over the next week and a half. I will be taking pictures and keeping you posted.
Wanna yell at me for not posting in such a long time? Leave a comment.
