Honey!

Was about to be reduced to photograph of a jar of honey when I saw this in today's newspaper. The man was a hard-charging Type A real estate guy who needed something to do when the real estate market went to pot. He ended up keeping bees - first for the pollinating of his urban garden, then when he learned of the need for pollinators in the city he decided he was doing a good deed. The home grown honey became a much appreciated side effect. Behind a cut because it's kinda big. (iPhoto sucks at letting you reduce and I forgot to ask PB to do it before I copy/pasted. Next time. I promise. :)

There are getting to be more and more urban bee-keepers - I think it is so good that urban plants are feeding those around them!
It's a wonderful idea, isn't it? I was thinking about adding some bee hives a couple of months ago and just hadn't got around to looking into it yet when the bear paid us the visit and made it seem like a bad idea.
Mark used to keep bees many years ago, but had to give them up as they are very time-consuming and we didn't have the time to maintain them.

I'm actually quite allergic, so it was always soooo much fun when he used to get me to help move hives.
*nods* not a good hobby for anyone with an allergy to them!
I'm personally terrified of bees (though I love honey), but despite that, this is a great story.
