  1. Just to be clear, the only part of the hives that is “ours” is the land they’re sitting on. Our neighbor Dana owns the hive boxes and bees, and he is handling all the bee wrangling. He gave us a frame of honey comb (wax plus honey) from late summer (the remainder of which you see in the jar), that is apparently (from it’s light color) made mostly from the flowers of the black locust trees the bloomed in mid-June. It’s super floral smelling, much like the flowers themselves.
