December 3. It is 65 degrees. We took advantage of the warm weather to go into our two hives to re-fill jars of sugar water. The honey bees are very active and their numbers look good. They haven’t been using very much of the feeding. We left them with good honey stores for the winter. I don’t need my lined pants today…shoot, I barely need a sweatshirt. I harvested some bunching onions for my Christmas Lima Bean Stew and used up those enormous limas that were grown on trellises in front of the hives this year. Yum.
(I have no decent photos of the Bees, so, I give you Bee-ns!)
There are still some flowers here and there.
