It’s been a banner year for honey production. Remember all that rain we had in early spring? It increased the nectar production in early blooming plants and blackberries.  We have more local, raw honey available than ever before or at least in recent years. It was a huge hit at the county fair.  You can find local sources for honey at www.tillamookbeekeepers.org in the Store.  You’ll need to contact sellers directly.

When you are driving over bridges in the county you will see 8 foot tall white flowers blooming.  That’s knotweed. It’s invasive.  The roots don’t hold the river banks in the winter which leads to washouts but it does have one redeeming value.  Honey bees love it! It makes a very dark honey that most peaople really like.
