Bee hive

bee-hive

Going into this year I had three bee hives, one was weak and two were strong. I did a split with the two strong hives this being one of them. Sadly there was a hive to the right of this one and it was actually my strongest and I got the most honey from it, but they left and the hive was taken down and put in the freezer to kill any possible parasites. The weak hive left in the spring leaving me with four through the summer, now I have three remaining, I hope they make it. At this time I have nearly 10 gallons of honey to put in jars for sale. Selling is one of my weaknesses, I do have one restaurant that buys from me but they don’t get much, so far I have sold 6 pints of honey.

Just a stay at home Dad trying to become more self sufficient in a world getting more dependent. It’s easy to get lost in all the things of the world, sometimes the best therapy is getting your hands dirty and growing something good!
