SO much to share, and it must wait until after work tonight! But honey was harvested on Sunday, and it was one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had. Many pictures and words forthcoming.

Happy Day!

  1. It looks like you are backyard beekeeping with neighbours not too far away. I've been tempted to do the same. Are they aware of the hives?

  2. Yes, we spoke to our neighbors, telling them what we were doing, and to 'sweeten the deal', offered them honey at harvest. They've been not only curious but enthusiastic, thankfully! We live in the Santa Cruz Mountains, so it's a rural area - so the gardens and crops nearby will most definitely benefit. :)
