Very interesting about the different color honey this year. Notice the difference in these two jars of honey. Both hives are in the same field and harvested at the same time but are separated by about 100 yards. They both have a pleasant taste but the dark may be just a little sweeter. The lighter honey come from a hive surrounded by Crimson Clover while the other hive is right on the edge of the clover and very close to the woods. I guess this proves that bees, like us, have different tastes when it comes to food.
