It's Honey, Honey.


Continuing on with the farm updates (super exciting, I know) Doug's beehive is flourishing. He started with 12,000 bees last spring and he estimates that there about 60,000 bees there now. They have been very productive, probably because of my flowers, heh, and there is plenty of honey, honey. We will probably fill at least fifty of these jars!

This is the first jar of honey that he extracted from his hive and you would think that Doug had negotiated world peace the way he is prancing around the house with it. Sometimes though, it's the little things......

How true......life is really made up of the smallest moments....they seem the most precious.

Yeah but... the 'homemade' honey I remember had little crusts of wax on the top to seal... don't they do that anymore? I considered it a treasure if I was first to open the jar ;-)

Melody, the image of one's husband dancing around with a jar of honey is certainly something to remember:)

Karen, ooh, I remember those too! I loved poking through it.

I don't know why he isn't sealing it with wax, or if it was just that the honey was less filtered and the wax floated up to form the crust. A good topic to google next time I am procrastinating:)
