So here we are… It’s the start of our 2nd season keeping bees. We got through what turned out to be a very mild Winter and we’re excited about what 2012 has in store. We lost one hive, but overall, our remaining hives are super strong. We’re really hoping to see a great harvest this year.
Last week we moved a hive to a location north of Metter. We have some friends with a nice piece of property there and they were gracious enough to allow us to set out 2 hives that I needed to get moved from my backyard. The offer of free pollination and honey helped seal the deal.
Last year the two locations in which we have hives produced honey that had very distinct flavors. I’m hoping perhaps we see the something similar now that we have 3 yard locations.
