The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Sorry it has been so quite on the home is nuts right now. A few big events and trainings left to go and then the summer should settle down a little. I am really, really looking forward to that happening!

I had a couple of evenings off last week and I just stayed home and quiet and enjoyed the time with my guy. It was nice to see his face!

This weekend we harvested honey from our older hive. They were literally running out of room and since it was already 6 supers (boxes) high, we couldn't really add any more and be able to see in the top and work with it. And of course, I use "we" very loosely...Chad really does all of the work with the hive. I did, however, help quite a bit with the actual honey harvesting. We only took honey off of 2 boxes but we got over 40 pounds...once we got all of the honey out of our extractor and let it drain out of the cappings (the wax you slice off to get the honey out), we got a ton!  It is much lighter than last summer's honey, since it is not mixed with the honey from the honey flow that is yet to come. It is more of a light blonde and last year's was a brunette. :)  We'll probably get at least that much more next time we harvest (late June or July?) so we are definately selling it this year...anyone interested in local honey??
