Gotta get me some Honey Bee action!
I contacted Baltimore Honey today to join their honey CSA and hopefully host a hive! They offer a 5 week workshop that starts in early February to educate folks like me who have the dream of having honey bee children of their own. Their CSA is the first of its kind anywhere, what a brilliant idea! For 45 bucks you get a pound of micro-local natural/organic raw honey...sweet sweet sweet.

Some fun honey bee factoids...

•honey bees must visit approximately 2 million flowers to make 1 lb. of honey.
•honey bees pollinate approximately 25% of all the foods humans consume.
•honey bees are the ONLY insects that produce food for humans.
•honey bees have 4 wings that beat 11,400 times per minute.
•honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible.

Support your local bee keeper! Love the bees!
