I read an article this morning about bootleg beekeeping in NYC. It's illegal there. But I have been fantisizing lately about havine all the space to do what I want with it and I want to keep bees as well as garden. Does anyone here keep bees?

My husband keeps bees. We live in a rural area. He went to a workshop, then bought two hives (this was in the winter of '07- '08). One of the hives died over the winter, but the other one is thriving. He wears one of those beekeeper suits when he deals with them. So far he hasn't been stung yet.

Very tasty honey.
