    That is why I like the setup I have. The lady sets everything up, checks on the bees, harvests and then calls me when I need to pick up a year supply of honey. I get the pollinators and they handle the hard stuff. Seems like a fascinating hobby but not one I have time for. Last year was the first year and 2 hives had 125 lbs of honey.

    We harvested our first honey yesterday. Pretty exciting.

    had to double take as my bees are still hibernating scared to come out of the hive haha. Some interesting color on that, what were they hammering to get that dark honey like that?

    I’m not sure. I assume a hodgepodge of wildflowers.
