Yesterday I bottled 10 pints, 15 lbs, of honey for us to eat. It’s spicy and sweet, medium amber. Really good. I think better than my September batch of honey, which was collected in a super and probably all Pepperbush honey. Pepperbush, a white flowered shrub, was in full bloom around the pond in August and September. It gives a floral, very mild honey. I took this new honey from frames throughout the hive, so it’s a mix of flower nectars collected throughout the season. Beautybush, Silverbell, Black locust, apple, Ajuga, clovers, purple loose strife, and fall asters and goldenrods.
