This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Nectar Flow update

Right now I see Spotted Knapweed in full bloom around the metro. Also Purple Loosestrife is blooming in swamp areas. Both of these are noxious weeds and should not be propagated. But having said that, they are both great honey plants. Purple Loosestrife honey is a greenish color and looks like new motor oil. Both plants make nice tasting honey.
