We been busy extracting Multi today ..... a real tasty honey dew /clover mix .
Five years ago it was worth $14/kg . Today it is probably value less.
In the present climate we should have taken the bees away and got them to produce a mono somthing, but in the early summer they looked like garbage and I could'nt be bothered to. move them.

What to do with four tonne ..... stick it in the brew pot ..... give it away to ensure site access next year .....

Yeah nah stupid ..... persuade people in the Big Smoke to put it on toast and eat it for breakie.
Do you have any vipers bugloss this yr .
I want to buy some

Startling is an understatement.
I moved most of my hives to our future lifestyle block in Alexandra in Spring last year. They are surrounded by many hectares of lifestyle blocks. We initially got an early season thyme flow, then the vipers bugloss came in. A very different taste and smell from what I was used to in south canterbury. Now I find clover honey very bland in comparison.
