We at The Honey Cottage are excited for spring. It’s coming; we have seen the signs and heard from our bee whisperer. The bees are in the peacock feed and enjoying the warmth after a cold winter. Just look at the photos and you will see.
First is what we call bottoms up!!
This is the time to give the girls a nutrient boost, POLLEN, to make sure they have all the energy they need to start the spring ritual, no sugar for my girls, no man made super food either. We prefer nature made super goodness for our girls. (POLLEN AND HONEY)
Of course the pollen needs to bee powered. We use a mortar and pestle and as you can see we get plenty of help!
Back at the hive; it’s party time and the girls love their pollen. Yes, we also give them honey when needed…ONLY honey!
These girls are from a hive that I saved from the eve of a home in the Springs last September and they are doing just fine and no sugar was used.
Yes spring is coming, the bees are buzzing, the sun is shining, my girls are growing, and my wife is glowing. Here’s to a sweet year!!
From my hive to your hive,
