    WOW, what does honey made from Mesquite and Creosote taste like!? I'm imagining like a sweet charcoal briquette! LOL

    Up here we get clover and apple honey quite regularly and very rarely wildflower honey. I wonder if honey made from bees visiting my Datura and Brugmansia plants would be as poisonous as the plant themselves?

    Doesn't that put you at odds - growing plants that consume your bees?

    Nice! I keep bees too. Last year my bees were a little insane, so this year I have to start with some creative beekeeping to undo what they did... Mostly I'm just going to trash a bunch of frames. How many hives you have?

    Mesquite honey is awesome. Least its Hawaii relative Prosopis pallida makes super tasting honey. just it tends to crystallize fairly quickly. End up with a jar with a block of sugar inside.....

    Nice! What sort of bees are they? Do you have to requeen often to prevent the hive being africanized?

    Beekeeping is another hobby I'm interested in and have studied up on a bit but haven't made the leap yet. I hope to start when the kids start going off to college so that we aren't going into debt just trying to keep the bottomless pits fed!!
