    Re: my honey has turned

    You can get all kinds of oak and level of toast from Northern Brewer. You can mix light and dark varieties to get a spectrum of flavors. Also the extraction of flavors from the oak varies with the...

    Re: What is raw honey?

    Whipping goes far beyond simple exposure to air. I think that the term "minimally processed" needs to be included in the definition.

    Also, I find it hard to believe that if I put whipped honey...

    2 - seeded with small crystals = change of state (liquid...

    Re: Does syrup ratio really matter?

    Not really.

    5 gallons sugar to 3 gallons water = 5 to 3.5 by weight

    5 pounds sugar to 3 pounds water = 5 to 2.5 by volume

    So you think that this is not a serious issue?

    Serious issues need to be discussed in a serious manner. Not hyperbole, innuendo, and sensationalism as you have provided.

    Re: Bee removal question

    So why cant you disassemble a 4x8 plywood sign? Seems like a ridiculous request. If they want the bees gone, tell them that you have to take the sign apart. How hard could that be?

    I dont understand why anyone would sell at a farmer's market when you can just set up a road-side stand. I put up signs, a canopy, and set the jars on a table. It's a good way to spend a nice...

    Re: Where should I place my hives?

    Wherever you decide to put the hives, I would not worry about putting them in separate places. If it is only 2 hives, keep them together.
