Cool - thanks! I'm thinking about bees in the future.

Remember what I said (just a few minutes ago....... ) about not having to take a class in order to learn about keeping worms? That doesn't apply to bees. It's ALWAYS a good idea to take a real "Beekeeping" class.

I'm going to start attending the closest beekeeping associations monthly meetings (tomorrow night in fact) - those are free I think, but even if I need to become a member, the dues are something like $15-$25 a year. I'll worry about the actual class later on.

We will be adding a bee hive or two come spring. (again)

It is a little on the scary side when you only see 2 honey bees all summer long. The last two hives were trashed by a mother bear and her two cubs. (sigh) So we are working on a fenced bee lot. LOL

Local honey is good for people who suffer from allergies or sinuses. I was told to stay with local honey within a 50 mile range. Something to do with the bees and local plants that cause the allergies. I suffer less from allergies since eating local honey daily, a teaspoon. I am fascinated by the bees, but no hive here!! Good luck with the bees!!

Honey is great for allergies, cough and sore throats... (etc) And you are right you need local honey. :)

And like you I take a teaspoon each morning.
