Look what we had for dessert

Fresh honeycomb.

Husband hired someone to remove a hive before his company began construction on a house. Fortunately they didn't get it quite all. And fortunately Husband is an experienced beekeeper.

He's made Sophie the offer that when she is ready to get rid of her plastic playhouse in our front yard, we can use that space for bees. Could my chickens not be far behind??

So pretty and tasty! Very handy that your husband has experience beekeeping. I hope you get some chickens soon!

I'm as prissy as they come but have always wanted chickens. I think I saw Martha eons ago talking about the different colors of chicken eggs and fell in love. The fresh honey looks delish- I eat a spoonful of honey about every other day. Yum!

We have a lot of bee keepers here in VT. I've become so spoiled and can totally tell the difference between supermarket honey and the stuff I get at the farmer's market.
I'd love to have chickens and use their eggs for our cookies. Wouldn't that be perfect?

One of my life long dreams has been to keep bees. There is just something so whimsical about them, and they give you such a treat in return!
And boy do I miss chickens. We always had them when I was little, but had to get rid of them when I was in middle school. Hopefully one day I'll get to have some of my own. The owner of the Bread Garden in Berkeley has both bees and chickens, and I envy him deeply for it.
