Dripping Honey


"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." - Proverbs 16:24


Mmmmm. Honey certainly is good. But honey in the honeycomb is ten time more so. To just dip a spoon and come up with a teaspoon of dripping honey and chewy comb... Yes, we've been enjoying the gift some friends and their bees gave to us! :) Mama and I are now considering getting our own hives...


"My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off." - Proverbs 24:13, 14

Have a sweet Tuesday!

Oh wow does that ever look good. It is making me hungry. I have always thought it would be wonderful to have bee hives. I don't know very much about how it is done... I would love to read about it if you end up
getting hives. It would sure be nice to have fresh honey regularly wouldn't it? Love your pictures. Blessings to you all SarahJayne

I forgot to add that I loved hearing about your green beans, and yes, this is such wonderful time of year. I love looking at the garden and bringing in veggies every day... its one of my favorite things. If you do a green bean tee pee next year I would love to see it. I am hoping to have something to show for my my own teepee project next year... between us, we will see what comes of it?
Blessings,
Pam

That looks really good! We've talked about getting some bee hives. I've heard you can get up to 90 pounds of honey a year from one hive.

Jonah would hate the idea of getting bee hives right now, but Micah would love it--he adores honeycomb, as do we all! And I love that verse in the Bible--what a perfect analogy!

Nice photos and I like the verse it fits perfectly!
