No this is not mushy demonstrative etude of affection to my wife - though it could be about her, since this post is about a food-related project we will undertake together in the near future. After receiving a copy of Robbing the Bees: A Biography of Honey, The Sweet Liquid Gold That Seduced the World by Holley Bishop from one great friend and talking with other great friends who have tried it themselves, we are planning to start our own little apiary this summer. We actually ordered a bee package and are looking forward to receiving our herd of miniature winged livestock in April. We expect that, as with all other produce, the local, farm fresh, just harvested stuff is far superior to store-bought offerings. Look for updates on our bees as the summer goes on and maybe even some great honey recipes. If you see me with a face full of red, swollen lesions, you will probably be able to guess how things are going.
