My neighbor has 2 bee hives. I mow around the clover in the grass when it is blooming.

My father caught his first swarm when he was 11 years old, because he was curious to see if he could get honey from it. He ended up having over 1000 hives, and finally gave it all up when he was about 84 years old. I am deathly allergic to bee stings. They figure it was because my dad had so many stings before I was born, that it came out in me. Regardless of all that, I love my honey, and have to have it every morning. Keeps me smiling.

It would be fun to have some (sub)urban bee hives in my neighborhood…I’d be growing a heckuva lot more lavender, if only for the ultra-tasty honey!

That is too cool. I heard a spoonfull of LOCAL honey every day can help with alergies like hayfever and other pollen type alergies. I have been thinking about it but dont know the first thing about it.
