    Re: I'm pretty sure I killed my hive today :-(

    If you secure any comb back into frames, be sure to have them with the cells pointing in the upwards direction. Or, the bees won't like you! lol

    Re: lemon honey first time

    Sounds good!

    Wonder if lemon extract can be used instead .........more flavor with less liquid added to the honey?

    It would be nice to have a lemon creamed honey. Can that be done?
