Sweet Rewards... October 06 2014, 0 Comments
We just harvested our first batch of honey! It was really exciting and I still can't believe that our little bees worked so hard all summer to provide us with this delicious liquid gold :)
Because it was so late in the season, we only took a few pounds of honey from the hive to leave the bees plenty to get through the cold winter. Interestingly enough, it's a rich, dark color...different from what I normally see on my grocery store's shelves...I wonder what was blooming in our area to give it that amazing color? I need to do a little research...but anyway, it's totally cool and we're super excited!
