We are posed a question:

I fell into beekeeping a month ago when the clubhouse I built for the kids attracted bees for the third time in about a year. So instead of hiring a local beekeeper again, I bought a suit.

I've moved the bees into a hive pushed out into the preserve a few feet, so we have our clubhouse back. The bees are happy. But I tried making honey following your technique on YouTube. I got some honey, but it tasted funny. Not just like wildflower honey, but really wild. Much wilder than the local beekeepers produce. I didn't know whether it was what the bees were eating, or how or when I harvested, or what. I didn't pay much attention to what was in the cells -- just as long as they weren't obviously brood. What do you think?

Thanks,
