this website a couple of years ago for an old post.
I started thinking about honey bees today after reading two articles about urban beekeeping in the Boston area. Take a look here and here.
It seems that the surge in urban beekeeping isn't just in the Boston area, but it's a growing nationwide trend. Part of the reason for it seems to be a reaction to Colony Collapse Disorder and the reduction in the number of honey bees.
Honey is one of my favorite things. I use it in cooking, baking, and as a sweetener in tea with lemon as my foolproof method for getting over a cold. Not only does it taste good, but it's a natural antibiotic.
I'm looking forward to trying more local honey produced by all these urban bees. Have any of you noticed more beekeepers where you live?
