HoneyLove Beekeeper of the Month: CEEBS
Bees Rescued from:
Water meter in Lakewood, adopted swarms, and a hive that moved into her yard.

“Somehow, I was always meant to be a beekeeper. It wasn’t a matter of if, just a matter of when. My first tattoo 20 years ago was of a honeybee. As soon as I had chickens running around my backyard my next thought was ‘Now where will I put some hives?’ 
I very much believe in the notion that you don’t find the bees; the bees find you.

I’m a lifelong learner and being a beekeeper means that there is always, always something new to learn. Bees are continually fascinating and exemplary. I love the self-reliance and ingenuity and study that being a beekeeper and bee rescuer requires. I didn’t suspect that being a beekeeper would be as special as it is, but it is truly a transformative activity and a global statement.”

“The only time I ever believed I knew all there was to know about beekeeping was the first year. Every year since, I’ve known less and less.” -Sue Hubbell, A Book of Bees

PLANT: Sage ?

To encourage pollinators to hang around your garden, make sure to pick a few plants that bloom after your fruit trees have finished. Clary Sage is a great biennial plant that loves the sun and grows to about 3’ tall (make sure to seed two years in a row to better your chances of a yearly bloom). Clary Sage, also known as Salvia sclarea, is used both as a medicinal herb and essential oil.

DIY: Lavender Honey Soda by Gardenista

First, harvest from five to six lavender flowers, leaving a few inches of stem with leaves on each.

Next, make a simple syrup. Bring two cups of water to a boil, and add 1/2+ cup of honey. 

Add your lavender flowers to the syrup and turn off the heat. Let them steep for from 10 to 20 minutes, depending on how floral you prefer your soda.

Pour one or two inches of simple syrup into a glass, add ice, club soda, and a generous squeeze of lemon.

Then sit back and enjoy your garden.
