Unfortunately, my bees did not make it through our harsh Michigan winter.
After a sneak peek of Spring, today we broke the record for most snow since 1881. It was brutal and it was quite disheartening for a first-time beekeeper and hive.
I did, however, get to taste some of their hard labor! The honey is bright orange-gold in color and packs a punch! I credit the pumpkin patch's beautiful flowers for this awesome flavor and hue. It seriously tastes divine! I'm happy there is a tiny bit left of my bee babies' legacy.
I know I gave them a great shot with plenty of food to survive and I have my new strategies set for next winter. I will be picking up my new package of bees on May 10. Here's to hoping this is a heartier brood!
Since Nathan and I now have a GoPro, I'm going to post more videos!
I'll be showing you my road trip and installation in May.
Stay warm if you live anywhere near me!
