In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Lots of sweet stuff!

 I
 have
been
extracting
 honey.

And working on the house...painting...
And doing a little bit of crocheting in the evenings...
some entertaining...
going to fairs and festivals...
and a whole lot of beekeeping.
  My cousin Vickie has been helping me.
 And I still can't keep up with it all!
 I'm thinking about less hives for next year. 
In the meantime.....
 I found out that I can mail honey in a flat rate box from the post office for $12.35 shipping.

 I charge $6.00 for a bottle of honey, 
and I can get 14 bottles in one of these flat rate boxes.
 or three quarts, ($18.00 quart)
 or three quarts and four bottles!  
Or many other variations of quarts and bottles.

If you are interested in buying some honey,
please e-mail me at 
hilltopbeelady@aol.com

This honey is raw, unprocessed, and I don't use chemicals on my hives.  Because it is raw and unprocessed, it will eventually crystalize.  To get it back to a liquid state you put it in some warm water.  Never microwave the plastic bottles.

I think I can also fit a bottle in a flat rate box for $5.85. 
So shipping for one bottle is about the same as a bottle of honey. 

I took this picture at the Indiana State Fair through some glass.
Can you find the Queen?
Her body is longer than the other bees...
 and she's bigger.

 If you made it this far in the post,
I have a treat for you.
I have decided to have a give away!!!

Just leave a comment.....
and you are entered in the drawing.  
I'll draw on Wednesday.

PS.  Sorry, must live in the United States to enter drawing.

  12. Congratulations on a great season with your bees. I am undergoing Venom immunotherapy, so no bees for me this year. But I'm using honey like gangbusters. I just posted a recipe (or two) on my beekeeping blog bbhb.blogspot.com. would love for you to drop by... and to win some honey, of course. ;)

  14. You are a busy bee !:) But of course you are, and your honey harvest proves you and your bees are busy & productive.

    We love to read about other bee-keepers managing their bees , making sweet honey to share with so many !
