Sweet Golden Deliciousness
What is that giant one gallon pickle jar filled with? Now at first glance you might think it's filled with refreshing sun tea. Now, I'll admit a glass of sun tea on a hot day is quite refreshing, but this jar is far more valuable! This jar is filled with sweet golden deliciousness...HONEY! I actually got 2 full jars that are not only beautiful, but OH...SO...YUMMY! Some dear friends that live just down the street collected 22+ gallons of this gold!
These are large, well established hives and to watch these bees do their thing is just amazing. I hope to learn the art of bee keeping from this seasoned pro one day! Oh, fresh warm bread with butter and honey...a spoon full in a warm cup of tea...or (like my little ones) I could just eat a spoonful all by itself! MMMM!
