For The Bees

Today was a busy day. Between finishing many food projects and a trip to Whole Foods, I took some time with my bees. While I am sure they weren't pleased to see me, I love nothing better than taking a quick peak when needed to check out what's going on.

With summer's end around the corner, I wanted to be sure the girls had a well stocked pantry. This was the first year for my hive so there was much work to be done early on. That coupled with weird summer weather, I decided to focus on getting them through the first year and not worry so much about a harvest.

All seems to be well - but let's be honest - do I really know what I am doing? The frames were full and capped which is all a girl can ask. I think. They've begun to hang out on the "porch" lately so the addition of a super box was probably timely. Many honey blooming plants are past prime but perhaps the goldenrod and other fall flowers will allow the girls to fill up a box or two for me.

Keep your fingers crossed for us and maybe there will be mulled mead this winter after all.

OK< who left that comment? Well, I do think you know what you are doing with the bees, but if you didn't, it would be fair, you know how to do everything else. What food projects? ANything really tasty? I did no food projects this summer. I bought fruit to freeze and preserve, and ate it all instead!
