My honey bees have been very productive! They have packed away over 5 bars of honey, not including what they have packed away in and around the brood bars. So I humbly helped myself to 1 bar of their surplus. From what I have learned I could have taken more without causing any harm. But I won't, I'm VERY grateful for this precious gift of their golden treasure. I got 3 full cups according to the line on this jar and that NOT including 2 cut outs I set aside, some eaten, some dripped all over the place, some lost from hands being washed and some still draining from the wax in a pot. And not to mention the wax which I'll melt down and put to use. I am one happy beekeeper!
P.S. Sorry to post something completely trite as a honey collecting, I'm just super excited since this is my FIRST time doing so!
Honey bees are absolutely amazing creatures!
What a wonderful flavor! So sweet and delicious!
