My grandfather had honey bees in his chicken yard when I was growing up. Since he just used old crates for hives with no frames, we never harvested any honey. I thought they were just pests until I took up gardening and raising fruit trees. I then found out I had no pollinators for either! This is my 3rd year keeping bees, and it has been an adventure. In that time, I've made so many mistakes, I thought the name fit!
