Bee Log #2: November 8, 2009

My husband and I sold honey for a few weeks at the Phinney Ridge Farmers' Market during August and September of 2009. Our display is shown below. It was a great way to meet people and talk bees and honey. Our few urban hives barely kept up with the demand and we completely sold out of the honey that we extracted this summer. (Except for the smelly ivy honey that we collected at the very end of the season! We won't sell that!)
Notice the different colors of honey. The really light honey was from the beginning of the summer and the darker stuff was from later in the season. We hope to be back at the Phinney Ridge Farmers' Market next summer. Last summer, our first honey extraction was July 4 so we expect to have a marketable product sometime around early July of 2010.
