It has been two years in the making and now we have our first harvest of honey. We used to keep bees 20 years ago when it was easy as far as keeping healthy bees. Now it is a bit dicey to get them to winter over because of the mites and diseases. So I guess it is in my blood, and to get 100 pounds of honey from two hives while leaving the bees 70 or 80 pounds for themselves to get them through the winter is just too much fun. To give you an idea, 100 pounds is about 8 gallons of an incredible local food / sugar with enzymes and pollen for our health. Without the help of my son Dan and my life mate Kathie, it would have never happened ...Thanks to both of you.
