I'll trade you some veggies for honey 2boysmom! That's something I've always wanted to do, but wouldn't even know where to start.
I'd love to, but we can't keep honey, that stuff goes like gold!
My husband has a tendency to......go VERY big when he gets a new hobby. He got into beekeeping as a side trip from needing beeswax to make a finish for a box he made for his grandma. He asked a family member of a friend who kept bees for the was and the next thing I knew, he had a hive. He swore it wasn't going to get out of hand, but 2 years later, he has 33 hives, has started a beekeeping association in our area, and is the (paid) county hive inspector. He makes beeswax candles, lotion bars and chapstick and has an observation hive that he takes to 4H clubs to teach the kids. Oh, and he has made a batch or two of mead (sp?), but he needs to work on that, it was nasty!
