We will be starting up a couple of hives in
2016, to see if they can produce good quality honey in
2017 and beyond.
Want to buy honey, wax, salves
3/15/16: First two hives being prepped and ready
5/23/16: After a successful month,
I now have 4 hives. The two original nucs I bought 4/23/16,
and third, a wild swarm I caught in a swarm trap in a poplar
tree, and forth, a split of one of the nuc hives with an
unhatched queen cell.
6/12/16: One tester frame
has been harvested from the largest hive and I will leave
the rest for the bees to live on this winter. Looks like
this shallow frame has 3lbs of comb wax and honey.
Hopefully, my hives will make more of this liquid gold
