Possibly somewhat driven by an irrational fear that a bear is going to get our honey, Jonny and I took three frames over the weekend. Bears are uncommon in our neck of the woods, but we’ve both been uneasy ever since our friends down the road mentioned bear tracks next to their creek. A few years ago, our neighbor across the street had a bear peeking in his windows. Uncommon, but not unheard of.
We are in our third year of beekeeping, and this is the first honey we’ve taken. It’s floral and light and pretty amazing.
There should be six more frames ready in a couple of weeks.
