    Thanks to all the helpful people on this forum!!! My first year hives, from which I wasn't expecting any surplus honey, just gave me 20 pounds. It is dark and rich and I am thrilled to have it. It's been a crazy year in the beeyard, but it's all been worth it - now I have to make it thru the winter-

    thanks again for all the help and wisdom found here-

    Congrats Angela

    This was my first year to eat my own honey too.

    It's too good to describe. I guess the best thing is that using my honey with fresh lemon juice has healed my daughters of illnesses. Made me feel very proud of the bees.

    careful there Angela and Daisy, you will give me hope .

    I am very, very happy for you. I am looking forward to my first crop. It makes me happy to see this post.

    I got near a hive for the first time yesterday when I helped Medicate about 25 hives. I got stung three times when we gathered two swarm's . kinda made me feel real good to work with them.

    Nathaniel, weird, but stings have started bothering me less and less. It's almost as if the more of them I get, the less they hurt (except the ones on my fingers - they always hurt.)

    Go in a sauna, sweat lodge, steam room etc. Get it as hot as you can possibly stand it for as long as you can possibly stand it and then take a break for a few minutes. Repeat for a total of four times. It always works for me and all the American Indians and nordic people swear by it too.
