About 3 hours of simmering before canning the Red Pepper Onion Relish. Was an evening well spent! The bright colors transformed to a rich ruby red. Onion, Red Peppers, Jalapeรฑo, & Tomato ๐Ÿ…. From the garden to the pantry.

I had to sneak out to grab some of the ripe red peppers for canning tomorrow. My neighbor Max may be trying to beat me to them. Two types. The Big Bertha is bigger than your hand!!! Canning Harry & David Sweet Pepoer Onion Relish. Itโ€™s darn close to the one in the stores.

Sooooo these are a couple of my assistants and this is me after tackling hive #4. Got out early to beat the HEAT. To say I am hot and exhausted is an understatement. I pulled three supers and there are about 8 remaining. #nottoday #nobeestings

4 hours later - refreshed and back to me!!!

๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฏ ๐Ÿ HONEY!! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฏ ๐Ÿ. The hives are full and i have started to pull 2020 harvest. Only removed 2 of 13 supers from our 4 hives to get started. Both are at 35 pounds each. Will start creamed ๐Ÿฏ honey with the next round - it will ๐Ÿ about another 3-4 weeks for it. It is a great honey year! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ’•

Round two - starting on extracting from all hives. Taking it slow - itโ€™s hot ๐Ÿฅต in a bee suit ๐Ÿ

Slo-mo - if you look to the left you can see the honey ๐Ÿฏ on the side of the extractor wall.

Got out in the garden and started checking on things. 9pm and I am cleaning them with a hose. Lance said that I smell like garlic!!!
Growing garlic is something to try - quite easy to do. We use Filaree Garlic Farm for seed stock. https://www.filareefarm.com/
You can do it!!!

Flashing back - Digging into photo history and found our first year in beekeeping was 2013. These were our shiny copper topped hives and first two NUCs. The following year we expanded and added two more hives. Canโ€™t believe how little the grandsons were and that they have two more brothers now. A photo taken several years ago after the Sustainable Garden Tour 2016. That was the year the aquaponics greenhouse was built. Three bottles of honey harvested the same year. Amazing how the nectar creates so many ranges in color and flavors (probably 2014). That was Black Locust on the far right. There were world naked gardening photos every year until this year. Not repeating those during this walk down memory lane. :)

Going hunting for ๐Ÿฏ honey ๐Ÿฏ again !!!!

Well.....no additional capped honey, but checked in on the hive that was a swarm a few weeks ago. Picture on the left is the beeโ€™s artwork. Gorgeous cells of amber & yellow pollen. Looks like stained glass. The white to the right of the pollen on the same frame is capped honey. The 3rd picture is proof of a laying Queen with some nice capped brood. Last picture is a zoomed in look at the uncapped larvea.

2020 Black Locust Honey. Only 50 pounds. These are glass embossed hexagon bottles with gold hex lids. Very light and floral honey. These are 12 ounces. When we extract again in a few weeks, the one pound plastic squeeze bottles of clover / floral will be available. Creamed honey will follow a couple weeks after that. Honey is about the color of a pale light beer, but honestly so much better. Message or call us. It wonโ€™t last long. :)

Extracting 2020....

It will be a couple days before this is bottled and labeled. Will post pictures when available.

I'm Ruby your neighbor on box Elder, would like to know if you have any honey? Also would your friend want any flowers, I'm putting my garden to bed and would give her flowers if she wants.
When would be a good time to pick up?
