Happy weekend neighbors! Hope you’re enjoying the lovely cooler temps!
If you want some of the most delicious honey I’ve ever tasted, you need to text Del Voss at 202-677-0959 so that you can pick it up at his home, 235 10th Street NE. Del grew up keeping bees in the midwest, and has been keeping bees in his corner of Capitol Hill for about ten years– not an easy feat, as beekeeping in close proximity to people can be tricky. To me the honey tastes lemony and bright, and has an incredible floral aroma. If you close your eyes and taste it slowly, it’s almost like taking a bee’s flight around the Hill.
Del keeps his bees on top of the carriage house behind his home, which you can see off the alley. His care and diligence pay off every year, when he harvests and jars his honey.
