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.

White Sweet Clover and White Dutch Clover

White Dutch Sweet Clover

White Sweet Clover

I did see the some White Sweet Clover just starting to bloom. White Sweet Clover (WSC) is the main honey plant in our area. It can be a tall plant, growing three to four feet tall. One plant, when in bloom, can have hundreds of flowers.
 White Dutch Sweet Clover is a short plant that grows well in bee friendly lawns.
Hopefully everyone has their supers on. If you are doing comb honey, make sure there is a good nectar flow before putting on the frames with thin surplus foundation.
