I was idly thinking about taking up bee keeping the other day. Homade honey! I'll get onto it as soon as I've perfected my salami and wine making skills...

Has anyone on the Forum done that at all?

And one thing I've always wanted to know: How do they make honey from only one particular flower? Train the bees?

Wine yes, salami no...but I'd do taste tests on your's....what to trade for.

I assume that they put the hives in the orange/almond groves, etc.....they are definately flavored with orange/honey blossoms! Them busy bees

They move the bees to where the type of flowers are in an abundance. They also take out all the frames of honey and put in new ones so all the honey in the new frames was gathered in a few weeks when, say, the clover is blooming.

My Dad used to have bees, but none of us kids could stand getting stung. My Dad would put some smoke in the hive and go right in with nothing but pants (tied at the bottom - he hated bees climbing up his legs) and long sleeves - no veil or gloves

Thanks Chuck, that makes sense. Always did wonder about that...

Jim, is that what would be known as trading in wine and salami futures?

Inish,
The honey bees are all dying off around here. They're estimating that the shortage of bees will cause billions of dollars to California's fruit industry. Try fruit flies - they're easy!

XJ,
