Two years ago I started keeping honeybees. My first bees did not make it through that first winter, but this past winter (2012-2013) I had a hive survive. Those carniolan bees have been incredibly strong and I finally got to take some amazing wildflower honey from them!
Next year I plan on establishing at least two more hives. Hopefully my proven survivors survive again!
Honey and wax going through the strainer. The result is beautiful golden honey!
