Where’s the Honey?
My husband and I have been keeping bees for about four years and I like to think that every year we know less about bees than we did the year before. Oh sure, we’ve learned a lot, but in each new thing we learn, 100 more questions are raised. This year we faced a problem that I never knew could happen. I mean, now looking back, it makes sense that it could happen, but prior to this fall, it was not on my radar of “things to worry about.” Our bees didn’t make enough honey. I don’t mean, “didn’t make enough honey for me to eat or sell.” I mean, didn’t make enough honey for their own winter survival.
