liquid gold...

That's what I used to call my home made maple syrup back in upstate NY.  It took a whole lot of sugar maple sap to make it (40:1) but I never got stung by a tree.  Jarred up one pint of honey this afternoon, saved from the bee move.  Since most of this honey (dark amber) was made from plant pollen from another part of the ranch, it will be interesting to see if they make a different color of honey once they get established at the Field Lab.

Cleaned up the house this morning - including much needed vacuuming!  Had just the kind of encounter I spoke about 2 days ago with the first visitors of season three.  Michael , Liz, and Cal came out for the grand tour.  It was my absolute pleasure to meet up with them last night at the Starlight and happy to show them around today.  It was really nice to make 3 new friends.  Benita cooperated by being on hand for their visit today.  95,100,66,0,B

That local Texas honey is supposed to be good for people with allergy problems.

The same bees can make several different colors and flavors of honey within the same year, depending on what nectar they are harvesting and how much of any particular kind.

That's a beautiful photo!

Im curious how you got the honey. Do you also have an extractor?
