It’s getting late in the season here in the mid-atlantic usa for honey production but the bees are blessing us with a second harvest after gathering 700+ lbs starting last month and May.
This hive has honey with a tangerine color to it and my mind immediately went to Hummingbird feeder. I’ve checked with everyone within 1/2 mile of the hive and two people are using them but neither uses dye or food coloring and both say they have the bee-proof feeders. Blooming right now are sweet pepperbush, clover, alfalfa, buttercups, and soybeans. I’ll have to wait and taste it to see if it’s real honey or sugar water.
