Honey Bees

September 26, 2010


My "honey" was sweet enough to purchase me this amazing book when he was in London a few weeks ago and just gave it to me as a little present. I love it. It is called the Collins Beekeepers Bible and I totally recommend it if you are anything like me and enamoured with our tiny little pollinating friends.

For a long time I have had a fascination with bees. Especially since I started edible gardening and realised just how important they are in order for me to get my lovely heirloom tomatoes!

As I don't have much garden space at the moment, bees are out of the question, but they are definitely on my "to have" list when we are able to purchase our dream of a lifestyle block in the countryside. In the meantime I will get my kicks from pouring over these beautiful pages and encouraging bees naturally into my vegetable patch with lots of colourful flowers.

It says that honey is the only natural food that does not spoil. Come to think of it, I have never seen mouldy honey! Curious and wondrous.
