There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Heck, in NH if your neighbor never says a word to you, that means you're on their GOOD side. rofl

The more you get into gardening/bees/chickens/hugel beds/swales/do it yourself pens/goats, etc., the less your neighbors tend to appreciate you. If I were your neighbor tho, I'd love it.

Camprn,
You should take her a nice jar of fresh honey and make sure she knows you harvested it from your nasty old bee hive. Very Happy drooling

If you have clover it is more nectar productive after the second cut when left to grow to about a foot high rather than from the first show of flowers or from giving it regular hair cuts

Yup, thanks for that! I try to manage the mowing to optimize the white clover riddling the yard into a few bloom times. The flower borders are finally coming along nicely with bee balm, gailardia, spring and fall asters, cone flowers, various alliums and sunflowers that I let go to seed. The annuals are the sun flowers, borage, calendula, bachleor buttons and zinnias, etc. I'm on a budget so I buy only a few things each year that I know the bees love and will propogate themselves. But really the bestest one is the dandelions.
