Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Nectar from our bees

Our first frame of pure gold... Our bees produced many pounds of honey this year for only one hive.   A full hive of honey can excede 100 lbs by summers end.
There are 10 more frames in the hive right now to feed them for the cold winter. We only harvested one frame this year. After extracting it, and letting it drip all night into a container,and sampling during the day... we actually we managed to jar 6 1/2 pints. The partial jar we will use ourselves this fall and save the rest for Christmas gift giving once we design our own private lable for BlueSky Farm Honey.
Isn't it pretty? So clear and golden. Yummy! Now on to the next project, Fresh Tomato Salsa.....
