There are some thorny problems to solve with both these tasks quite apart from the practicalities of not having any garage space or getting stung by bees. They involve maths and physics and I am sitting down and trying to think it through.
Re. the calcium carbonate, I am not sure how the hell you ensure the right spread and that the whole lot gets equal application. I do not want to leave it to chance as my workers are used to the standard 25 bags a hectare but my current application is more than that as the farm was not properly corrected for a few years.
Before retreating to 'mi casa' and letting them get on with filling the air with chalk, I think I will help out with a little calculation about how much should be put on each square meter then do a demo and show them how much it is.
Re. the honey extraction with no centrifuge machine. We could just use comb but then we take it away from the bees who actually need it to fill with the next lot of honey. Or we could try to drip the honey out with out a centrifuge. Not sure that will work. Probably have to take some comb and be done with it. Very tricky.
