LOL.. A man can't just sit idle.. LOL.. We used to get this really deep, dark honey. I guess it is because we lived "in the woods" and there was a big variety of nectar for the bees to collect. It was sweet, dark, and (IMHO) the best honey I ever tasted. Forget maple syrup, we put honey on our pancakes. I have been wanting to get back into it, except that the wine takes up most of my free time (I am still working for $$$ and watching the government take it all away in taxes.. LOL). How bad is this "colony collapse disorder" I keep hearing about?
