I was worried there wouldn’t be much honey to harvest right now because it’s been a particularly dry summer, but BH there is more than I expected. Today I opened one of four of my mature hives and, well, I was very pleased by what I found.

I wrote a little poem for the bees: Thank you sweet little selfless hardworking bees for your dedication this summer. And thank you for your patience with my sometimes clumsy human hands and plans.

So looks like there will be some honey available for sale before Rosh Hashana. I will post updates.
