Adventures in Beekeeping: It’s Not Just the Honey That Makes Tending a Hive So Rewarding

“The truth is, I wouldn’t be a beekeeper if it weren’t for a strange man I’d never met falling in love with a lady who was allergic to bees. The pair got married, and, not long after, the fellow sold his hives, honey extractor, smoker, veils, gloves, and back issues of Bee Culture magazine—all easily worth thousands of dollars—to a dear friend of mine for just 250 bucks. I thought it was all rather touching—not to mention quite the haul, as my friend turned right around and gifted the equipment to me.”
