I apologize for the slow posts this season. I’m not sure how any beekeeper would ever have time to keep up with a blog at the same time. I would consider this season a success. From my two strong hives, I pulled a total of 76 pounds of honey. I wish I could have filmed the fight. Several times I thought the bees might actually beat me. Bees just don’t understand what’s happening when you take their honey. It seems sort of cruel, but I feel confident that I left my two hives plenty of honey and plenty of time to collect honey stores to get them through the winter. And while I do not feed while the honey supers are on the hives, I will offer some supplemental food in the late fall/winter. Thank you to everyone who has purchased a bottle of my honey this season. I really appreciate your business. This has been an expensive but very interesting journey and I do plan to keep it going.
