Honey factory :)

Honey factory :)

This is what you can see, when lift the hive cover (annoying light reflections are due to glass plates over the top).

It is not so easy with honey - maybe for the first look one may say:
great amount of bees = great amount of honey.

But the true is that it deeply depends on nectar & pollen sorces NEAR apiary. Near means in this case up to 1,5km of distance (about 1 mile).
Because bee uses honey (nectar) as a fuel for her flying, this is like refueling your car: there is no sense to drive to a petrol station many miles away from your house.

Another case is an age of bee family: three of them are quite young, so they mainly build their strength before winter. In our climate that means almost 6 months to survive (using stocks inside hive), with outer temperature down to -20C.
Then next year they will be "productive", I hope (winter is serious adventure for our bees, this is not Africa Smile).

Anyway, during first year we have got about 40kg of delicious honey (I''m terribly sorry if someone is before meal).
