What a year….
Cold spring, wet summer, and cold fall. And it’s currently snowing outside. But that’s the new normal it seems. Good news is that the bees did pretty well this year. I am still the beekeeper at Olbrich Gardens in Madison, at the Aldo Leopold Center in Monona, and a few hives around town.
It’s been strange having a full time job and having beekeeping as the “hobby”. I set up all of my equipment back in the honey room in my house. And I’m tying to do as best I can juggling space as well as time.
I am happy to offer this year’s honey is some great new gift backs and jar sets, including a partnership with Olbrich Gardens. Everything on the site will be 25% off, including classes, from Halloween until December 1st. All items ordered during that time will be shipped between December 6th and 13th.
