Any privet hedge blooming?
there may be some. I have seen them really giving my garden a workout (but it doesn't seem like enough to produce what they have)
My wife knows what privet hedge is and she hasn't noticed a lot of it.
be aware that before I kept bees any conversation I was involved in about flowering things involved the question "can you eat it?" My mistake I should have collected the knowledge for times like - I dunno - now.
to answer an earlier post about the time period - they've built the comb it was stored in in the last week.
I also understand (if I have that info right) that they will move honey around too. - like to make more space in the brood nest.
I have no idea what my girls are foraging, but my honey last year and this year both taste very buttery. When I mention it to others that taste it, they don't get the same impression. I do enjoy it though.
I really liked it - it tastes a lot like that fiddle faddle or the other buttery carameled popcorn. (hope I get a lot of it.)
