Yesterday, had a delightful walk through the farm with my bee mentor. He is very knowledgeable about all the plants and the different honey harvests. The next harvest will be flavored by Eucalyptus. Eucalyptus gives an astringent bite to the honey. It is supposed to be very good to clear the airways, improve breathing and in general make you well.
There are lots of Eucalyptus trees by the river. They are enormous trees that re-claim land and pretty much line the river bank. They are starting to flower. These flowers were buzzing with my honey bees.
Hasta end of May.
