I started beekeeping about three years ago after taking a class at the local nature center. It didn’t take long to become very passionate about the bees. I’ve always enjoyed my organic fruit trees and vegetable gardens and the bees are a very important part of that. This afternoon was rather chilly and my husband and I sat by the fire to enjoy a cup of hot tea with honey while playing a rousing game of Clue with the kids. The truffles and almond biscotti were a lovely accompaniment.
