I have been putting a buzz in my hub ears about keeping bees.  He says "no" because of our little one but I think they would be an amazing mommy and me project.  We'll see right now we are raising chickens and so far only 2 have met an untimely end at her hands.... she loves too much. Cry

One of my favorite memories is being a kid and eating the honeycomb of my best friend's fall honey harvest. We did just claw at it like bears, it was the best thing ever! Beautiful honey by the way (:

We love honey in this house! every flea/farmers market we see my husband makes us stop. He takes forever picking out just the right color with just the amount of comb. Cannot show him this post because you make it sound easy.

Yum yum yum. I love it and I love bees. They are amazing. Also the process of collecting honey and wax is kind of a meditative practice (at least to me it seems so) A labor of love. Is it this way for you??

Thanks for the comments, everyone!  Our honey is a huge hit at our farmer's market.  I also sell eggs, lamb, vegetables, goat milk soap and crafts, but honey is what everyone waits for in the Spring. 

Yum yum yum. I love it and I love bees. They are amazing. Also the process of collecting honey and wax is kind of a meditative practice (at least to me it seems so) A labor of love. Is it this way for you??

It is.  Beekeeping is expensive and a lot of work, and honey harvesting takes us a full day but it's always a good day.   Smiley
