Warning: I’m going to have a few unhappy customers!
Most friends probably realise that I don’t keep bees for the honey millions I could be making, but for pollination of my veggies and my neighbours veggies and, hell while I’m at it, for our future.
But even I admit it was a pretty disappointing harvest after over 3 months.
I had 3 of 4 hives swarm just pre-Covid.
And while 2 recoveries were successful, they only just got their honey supers.
Only Bernadette had any honey for me (note they all have more than sufficient honey stores).
Isn’t it a beauty!
This is already SOLD to @theplantlounge for their lovely customers.
For anyone who doesn’t think we are still in drought, previous years harvest at this time of year, is around 75kg. Yesterday I got 8kg.
