Wife Wants to Try This

Got to give this some thought about how to best pull it off for her. Honey and maple syrup augment our organic sugar consumption quite a bit and prices have gone through the roof.

Bee’s need fed in the winter. Other than that they are pretty low maintenance.

My grandpa would rob wild bee trees when I was a kid . Some of the honey was as dark as molasses . In my wanderings in the woods I have found some of the old trees . You could tell because they would put a sheet metal patch over the hole that was cut . I wont do it myself because I am allegic to bee stings . I also helped make molasses all the way from planting cane to boiling it down .

I have helped make maple syrup . It takes 40 gallons of maple tree sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. It is boiled down slowly stopping at the precise moment . It can not be left unattended at the last part.
