We have a little breather from work this month so in a few days we're packing up and heading to Ohio. Here is a preview of what we're likely to see:
While the world bee population is dwindling, my Dad is having trouble building hives fast enough to accommodate his growing bee population!!! Dad has been keeping bees for more than 40 years. He attributes his success to his bountiful garden and the many fruit trees on his property that provide his bees with good nourishment.
When I ask dad about the tremendous success of his garden and fruit trees (so far this year he's sold over 300 pounds of peaches!) he says the success is due to his bees who provide pollination. There you have it! The secret to hearty fruit trees and a thriving bee population is to have BOTH.
