the sweetest ever, despite the bitterness


newly hive-less and with a plan to take the year off from beekeeping, we find ourselves with an early spring honey harvest.  when added to the harvest from last July we're hoping this should get us through the next year or so, maybe even until we've got some girls buzzing in the back yard again with honey enough to spare for us.

it is the most delicious honey I've ever had.

  1. Sorry to hear you lost them. I just posted about how there are no bees around here. Or very few. I'm bee worried. Enjoy the honey though!

    1. bee worried for sure! it is depressing to think of all the hardships these awesome little pollinators are facing :( looking forward to getting some more hives next year, but also kinda happy to be taking the year off. enjoying the honey will be pretty easy.
