    Default Hello From the Mississippi Delta!

    I'm interested in learning how to keep bees because I have read about the population decrease of bees, and noticed decreased numbers personally. This population decline concerns me. The fate of the bees is ultimately our fate as humans since we depend so heavily for them to pollinate our crops. I also simply love the taste of honey!

    Welcome! It is only 38 percent of our food. Having the canary die is a little disturbing when there is no way out of the mine! The positive side is bee populations have declined and recovered several times before. We just give it a new name every generation. Glad to see you doing your part soon!
