February — To Bee or Not to Bee

That is definitely a question that I would answer – not to bee.  But Chris has a bee in his bonnet, and thinks this will be a good idea.  I do love that our farm produces “things” – vegetables, eggs, and maybe – honey.    I don’t love the idea of getting stung.

I’m not unfamiliar with the idea.  My family used to keep bees.  I can build bee equipment, and I know how to extract honey.  It’s the stuff in between – actually tending to the bees – that I have no idea about, nor do I want to.  So Chris is now attends the Chester County Beekeepers Association and he is also enrolled in a beekeeping class to get an overview of the ins and outs of a hive.

He came home with a collection of beekeeping catalogs and a Beekeeping for Dummies book.  I’ll leave it at that…

  1. So hübsche Tierchen die Bienchen, aber eben, sie können mit ihrem Stachel schon eine grosse Hand verursachen! Aber der Honig ist natürlich auch gut und schmeckt sicherlich in eurem Gebiet sehr gut. Aber jedem das seine! Ich kann nur sagen, gut Honig!
