Wild honey amazes me. My wife Jen and I bought a house in town so we could be close to everything we do and within walking distance to schools, parks and stores. When Jen suggested getting bees I thought they might be a lot of work, but supported her ambition. The first package of bees turned out badly, the built strange comb and eventually the hive died. The next spring my dad, also a beekeeper helped Jen to get another package of bees. This time they were the Italian variety. We got them in May and two months later we have 28 pounds of beautiful golden honey! When we harvest the honey we have to uncap the wax. The honey saturated cappngs are delicious to chew.
whether you reside in the city or in the country raising a hive of bees is a rewarding and exciting adventure.
