I have decided to put a top bar hive in my backyard. I plan on making it this winter, ordering bees in January and hopefully setting it up in April. Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.

I also have a great personal interest in honeys and have a website dedicated to honey, especially honey with a story behind it. It is not a beekeeper site, but should be of interest to beekeepers. It is a honey lover's site: http://www.honeytraveler.com.

I would be delighted to post any stories there from this community that would potentially be of interest to people who love honey, traveling, natural history, food and are particularly intrigued by anything related to or about honey.
