I'm glad to see you have some bees, Don. I got an active hive late last summer and put it out next to my garden. I think I had the most tomatoes per plant this year than I have had in years. It had gotten to the point around here that you just didn't see any honey bees in the garden. I had a neighbor tell me a few months back that he saw a bunch of bees in his garden this spring and all I said was "you're welcome". I got the bees for the garden and the honey is just a plus. Roy

We have had a hummingbird feeder out back of our house for years. This year, we had honeybees visit. Never had that before. They also liked our late peaches (just stopped picking last week). Many of the fallen fruit was smashed and laid open--the bees found 'em. It smelled like fermented peaches around the trees and I believe the bees REALLY were enjoying themselves!
Glad for 'em. Couldn't have much of a garden w/o 'em.
Well considering I don't think we can bring any back across the border (gotta check on that), we would like a jar that would last us say from Thursday to Wednesday Course, I am athinkin that we will wanna taste Cecil's too Fresh honey ..... mmmmmmmgood!
