The good news is as we all know the weather has been glorious, this means the bees have been working really hard and have built up nicely. At present the main nectar producing plant are in full flower, these here include Lime Trees, Bramble and Clover. Bees collect nectar off these flowers and transport it to the hives which in turn is turned into honey (more on this in a later post). When the honey is ripe the bees cap this over with a wax capping, it is when it is capped that we know its ready to be harvested.
