Sweet Honey


--by alisamom, posted Feb 25, 2017
A few weeks ago I noticed that my bees had all died. Unfortunately they had a rough summer and fall. But it's okay; it happens. 

I spent the last two weeks extracting what honey was left and cleaning everything up to be reused for the new bees this spring. The wax and wooden hardware need to be frozen in order to prevent them from being ruined by bugs until then, but our freezer is full.

So our friends let us use their freezer to store all the wax and hardware for a while, and in return I gave them a jar of honey as well as some cut comb honey. :)

balou wrote: Sorry your bees died. I know it's nature, but it hurts nevertheless. Keeping bees is so important nowadays ... without your bees pollination would be far less ... insects have been dwindling those last years ... And for your neighbour it was probably a wonderful gift to receive a jar of honey!
