Early Harvest gifts from the Honeybees!!!
Our honeybees have done an exceptional job this year! They are busy busy busy! I have already harvested bee pollen. In this picture, the left pollen is lighter and the pollen on the right is more orange in color. The difference in what the bees are collecting as far as available pollen sources.
I have been able to bottle some and it is available for purchase. Great for allergies among other ailments too!
We have also harvested some honey that is light but very thick and yummy! These girls are doing so well this year. Connecticut has had a perfect Spring which has helped them thrive.
