#redhousehoney06 Yesterday RHH brought home 40,000 babies — worker bees that is, to begin our summer honey production. These busy girls got right to work the minute we let them out of their cardboard nuc boxes and put them in their cozy new Amish-(hand)made homes.
Feasting on apple blossoms, dandelions, dogwood, tulips, and tree pollen, the girls got right down to work. The queen will start laying now, and brood will quickly build up to the point that honey can be made. By July, we hope to be rolling in honey
By August, RHH will have a wildflower honey harvest. Look for us at the Prescott Farmer’s Market, Halley’s in Iroquois, Burchell’s Home Hardware in Cardinal, French Cafe in Manotick, Jacobson’s and Westboro Pharmasave in Ottawa. We’ll also be at the Iroquois Bluegrass Festival at the Iroquois Canal June 13-15, and Harvest Days/Antique Wheels in Motion north of Domville on August 17. Or drop us a line.
