Hoping that's what I'll look like next summer. I'm going to attempt building a top-bar beekeeper this winter.

Looks like you have a beautiful day to work the bees there. What are you doing to them?

Yes - I just emailed you a little tune I did about bees and honey. The kids dig it!

Looks surprisingly idyllic, given the circumstances.

I freaked out my husband by talking about getting bees the other day (not yet, just sometime in the future.) Apparently he can get behind chickens, sheep, and goats, but the bees are going to be all me. I can work with that.

Nice! BTW, re-read your barnheart article the other day, and it inspired me to attend a local farming conference coming up this weekend. Thank you for all the writing you do :)

I have always wanted to keep bees. One of these days, it's gonna happen! Thanks for showing the world the possibilities!

Have you ever read "The Secret Life Of Bees"? I'm reading it now and it makes me think of you and your beekeeping.

I'm still "mad" about not getting in on the wool CSA....but I forgive you as my fellow apiarist!

How's this for crazy: I found out today that I am the keynote frigging speaker at a banquet for a convention on food sustainability and food security.

I did not ASK to be a speaker.

But apparently I am and people are actually looking forward to this??

(They could have warned me about this, but it's still cool!)
