Jump back in with Mike Stumreiter this week as we buzz through a conversation on he and his wife’s new hobby and small business – beekeeping. It will not bee boring, and the bee puns are actually surprisingly minimal.
What started as a battle royalé with wildflowers turned into a welcoming of 20,000 bees into his eternally flowering backyard.
Enjoy this buzzworthy episode, from the “ah-ha!” moments to the connection Mike makes between beekeeping and trucking. You’ll learn and laugh guaranteed.
“We went to the store, and it was $8 for a little jar of honey… that one ingredient costs more than the meat we put into the meal!”
“If we lose bees, the downside is, we lose everything, people.”
“In beekeeping, ten beekeepers will give you 12 different answers. I go, ‘It’s kind of like trucking!’”
“I don’t know why we don’t have a truck driver president yet. We know it all. And if we don’t know it all, we will ask another trucker that does know it all.”
“Each hive had a three-pound package [of bees]. In the three-pound package, there are 10,000 bees.”
“It looked like an Armageddon of bees. I’ve never seen so many bees in my life.”
“You want to see a dance that’s never been invented – let me get stung.”
