    Re: Any cons to buckwheat?

    I tried to make Jadwiga that called for Buckwheat honey. It did not taste like the Jadwiga that I was given! I like darker honey, my kids and wife do not. To each their own I guess.

    Re: Missing Queen Request Assistance

    I did it with my first hive. I don't know why. I read books that said not to. I still did it. Dumb beekeeper I was and still am, although I haven't done it again :)
