Oak (Quercus robur) and oak (Quercus ilex) are the sweetest trees on our planet and the jobs they give to bees. Bees make honey with nectar wrapped in flowers. The floral era is the spring, which is rejected from the calendar and is prolonged until the day is cut a lot in the middle of the summer. They are dedicated to fluttering heads in order, among other things, to complete the reserves of fly with honey.

From midsummer onwards, it is usually a honey from other honeycombs. The flowers have not only been cleared but have disappeared and the new winter season is far away, far away! A dew will come that will cut and calm this space. Large slices start in mid-summer; the day is considerably shortened, the temperature will not stop decreasing and the humidity will increase. Rude results and suffering of moist plants such as tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum), vine (Vitis vinifera), etc.

But the summer of the bees and the fall that will delight the goal will be another orchard. Honey dew. Oak and oak are visited by countless insects at this time. Visits are not good. They come to eat lice, cochineal, etc. And there, beyond that, they'll get a lot of bites and grills. When the insect has been fed, it leaves the wound and it flows and flows, the tree sweats everywhere. Well, bees are going to get that sweat. When this sweating is left in the leaves, being sweet, it forms a mirror similar to a lica, as if it were a dew, and being sweet it is called “honey dew.” Instead of using nectar for food processing, honey will be used and honey will not be made when it is packaged. They'll make dew honey.

Dew honey is not like ordinary honey. It is darker and more intense, stronger, and in its ingredients it is richer than the honey of its flowers: it contains more amino acids and minerals.

In late summer, Curculio elephas attacked the acorns, a worm that lays an egg on the skin of the acorn that holds the acorn and leaves it perforates it. Honey also flows from this wound and bees collect it perfectly. Without insect bites, those affected attribute the effusion to a fracture between the bellota itself and the skin. From one to the other, sweet acorns. And more dew honey for the winter.

Do you want to help bees? Yes, put flowers, of course, but sow acorns. It gathers the work for the winter that comes on the agenda.

Let's take the bitterness spring.
I do not forget the spring of Rioja Alavesa. For many years I have captured the vineyards of that time in full bloom and it is surprising; the new landscape is short, but in that short period it burns the roof of the eyes and forgets what was there until then.
