    • Nice. A couple of years ago I tried some wine from simply local fruit and it turned out very pleasant. All the bottles are gone? I just wanted to see how easy or difficult making wine is and it was actually very simple. I suppose one could get much more involved go in many directions. I did add a source of yeast. I will have to try this as soon as I get some bees ! I have a herd now , but they are just visitors and collecting pollen. So we shall see ? Intersting stuff.

    • Michael, what type of bee would you recommend for someone with a small backyard garden/homestead say 50’x50′ yard. I live in an older neighborhood in an urban area and have a 6′ privacy fence, and have been considering getting some bees. My concerns are that I don’t really want to inadvertently myself or my neighbors to cause a swarm. How few bees can I safely keep in this confined area without the hive growing out of control? Are there other options such as fruit flies that might better aid/serve my pollination needs? Any info is helpful, thanks. BTW great article. I love the series and have listened to you respond to questions on TSP.

    • Michael, I will be moving to a location much more condusive to having bees in the fairly near future. When I do I will get in touch with you and I have been reading all your stuff. I have been aware and intrigued with bee’s for a very long while but never raised any. I have raised goats and chickens, horses and a few other critters but no bee’s. I just want to have a hive or two. I actually do have a lot of bees in my garden and kind of wigged out on photographs of them in the last few years. Scope some of them out on my site and FB page and I have more if you ever want to use any of them, I will forward to you. I think you may appreciate them and have a use for them. Feel free to contact me and ….. Good on Ya !
