What does a beekeeper do when the harvest is soo weak that she can not go to market?

This years harvest was the worst that we have ever had.  We have come to the realization that nature won out this year and things were out of our control.  Whether it was the heavy rains early on in the spring or just natures way of adjusting things, we definitely were on the short end of the stick.

I just finally got the nerve up to take a peek at the tank and found it was only 1/2 full which means we only have about 500 lbs. left.  We are averaging about  60 lbs. or so a week so I am think 8 to 10 weeks left of market.

I still have wax so I will be busy making candles and lip balm but there has never been a really strong market for just those.
