Happy Valentine’s Day!
Did you know that Saint Valentine is also the patron saint of beekeeping?
Though in our climate it’s nowhere near time to think about beehives and nectar flows yet, Old-World beekeepers might be gearing up for the thaw and eventual arrival of spring by the Ides of February.
We’re not expecting our new box of bees to arrive until mid-April, but in the meantime we’re still enjoying a sweet Valentine’s Day, courtesy of last fall’s honey harvest. Hope your holiday is just as sweet!
