Thank you sir for the video it's great to see how the honey is extracted. I was told that honey will keep indefinitly if kept seal in a jar is this true? Thanks for sharing.

I encourge people to let dandilions grow and not poison their yards. These are good food for bees, making lots of pollen and nectar, even when the other flowers are off season. As a child, I very softly petted the wings of bees on dandilion flowers and was never stung, they were to busy gathering up the riches of food. Bees need our help and dandilions grow and bloom earlier, keep blooming through drought and storm, and continue blooming later than almost anything else, and require no care.
