Ahhh, trying to stay low and change jobs without coming to grief in a number of ways. And being exhausted enough that I'm not very coherent when I get home most days, so haven't been posting.

However, things are looking up. I think.

The bad news is, in the US 33% of the honeybee colonies collapsed in the last year.
They said this doesn't all the bees died but it's still a pain in the ass for bee keepers and bad news for we gourmands.

The good news is, the bees, tired of waiting for humans to get their shit together, have started their campaign against
certain human institutions cough monsanto cough, recruiting their best and brightest to brew up a solution.

I guess in the Netherlands a lot of people bought bees, for the honey I presume.

Here's an interesting thread on Reddit where people are talking about the different flavors of honey in different parts of the country. Most of them I'd never heard of or imagined existed.

Mr. Clod just picked up an avocado honey, which we haven't cracked open yet. It is almost black, and very thick. Seemed very odd to me because I don't picture the avocado plant as having blossoms.

A guy up in Newark Valley does Linden honey, super dark with a really complicated flavor. Is yum.

There are so many types of bees out there it's confusing.

I just want to give my ladies some props here. I lifted the lids on them to vent the last few days because of heat. Tonight with a storm coming in I replaced the lids which is a huge no no because bees are pissy before storms. They were totally cool about it. "Thanks Mr. G, we didn't want to get wet."

Here's a really nice frame of brood from a nuc that was gifted to me by another beekeeper that was hurt and can't work for a bit. Fortunately, she is better now.
