Honey, Get In Here
If you’re like TBH Beekeeper Becca Sonday, you can’t wait for the 2010 honey harvest to begin. So, you’ll be happy to know that Becca’s been checking the hives for you – not too frequently, mind you, lest the bees be deterred from production – and things are looking great! Rows and rows of golden comb in a few of the hives, when we at TBH weren’t sure if we’d get anything out of our first years.
Unfortunately, with the recent humidity, it’s been a bit difficult for the bees to cap the comb off. They won’t cover it unless it’s just the right consistency, and it is this diligent patience that gives our honey its amazing quality and prevents it from ever spoiling. So we have to be patient too. The golden goodness we’ve all been waiting for is there. It’s just curing. So bee patient yet! We’re going to crack open the hives in a week and try and harvest it if we can.
