Y’all drop by and see us at the Seguin Trade Days on the square in Seguin tomorrow from 9 to 4. Our booth will be near the new gazebo in Central Park. We’d love to see you if you can make it!
Meanwhile, back at the Ranch, the yaupon holly is blooming in Gonzales County and the bees at our beautiful Pizza Yard are starting to make some honey. The bees have struggled to build up this year, probably because it has been so dry, but they are starting to come around. I expect the main honey flow to come from the Mesquite trees, which usually produce very well in dry years. We checked a few of the mesquite trees today and sure enough they are loaded with blossoms that will start to open up in two or three weeks. We are working hard to get the bees in every yard strong enough to produce a good crop of mesquite honey this year. Here is a look at the still maturing mesquite blossoms. Appropriately enough, they will turn a golden honey color when they finally open.
