Re: Where's the $ in beekeeping?
Frank - yes. I've run an aquatics company for 12 years, and when I am worried about money, and profit and etc., I have to remind myself that first I am a fishkeeper. I tend the fish, the rest sorts itself out. I see the bees much the same way. I like Michael Bush's line - everything works if you let it.
And I think I'm ready to talk to my ex-neighbor about the bees occupying her shed. Ferals. Am I ready? It will be an educational event.
Time to be a gypsy again, 2014 will be my prep year, my bees want a better area with actual rainfall.
