Rob Alexander, one of the leaders of the Gwinnett Beekeepers Club, outdid himself Saturday. Oh, I’m sure he had some help – people who helped haul coolers and food, plates and utensils – but while all of us sat around the pavilion at Rancho Alegre (the wonderful home of www.Gwinnett.LocallyGrown.net) and ate ourselves silly, Rob cooked hamburgers, and hotdogs, and bratwurst. My friend Geri and I left before the end, but I imagine he did a great deal of the clean-up afterwards, too.
THANK YOU, ROB!

It was a good ole American picnic, with baked beans and potato salad, brownies and fudge, squash casserole (my personal favorite of the afternoon) and coconut cake. Not too many ants. Lots of beehives.
Beehives? At a picnic?
Well, not right there in the pavilion. To check the hives, we had to walk across the field. More than a dozen people at a time gathered around a line of hives, asking questions of Tommy Bailey (the other club leader), and learning a lot.
That’s what beekeeping is all about – learning.
