To Bee or Not To Bee

Pete got a wonderful book for Christmas this year all about raising bees. We’ve talked about it over the years, but never really looked into the possibilities! Now, he has a book with lots of information and pictures…. oh boy, we may have bees!

Mozzie is not so much interested in the book as he is in getting some cuddle time! He LOVES to sit on anyone’s lap that is going to stay put and love on him!

It would be interesting to have two sources of good, natural sugars… maple syrup & maple sugars as well as honey!! I’m going to have to figure out how to switch over to these for all my baking & cooking instead of buying the ‘white stuff’!! I wonder how that would work….   I guess I will have to do some research of my own.

Do any of you have bees? Any pointers? Any other recommended reading? How about places for supplies…. did you make your own or buy them? Do you cook with honey? Care to share a good cookbook or tips that you’ve learned along your journey?
