Notes From a Beekeeper's Daughter

Lessons learned from the hive.

Notes From a Beekeeper's Daughter | WGBH | Craving Boston

It's kind of embarrassing to be a third generation beekeeper and at the same time a novice, but with a hive that's not yet two years old, I'm very new to this ancient practice. 


When my father dusted off his grandfather's equipment to begin the first hive of his own, I wasn't interested in taking the risk of stings for honey returns.  My 14 year-old self was engrossed in maintaining my ill-suited Jennifer Aniston haircut. Wearing a veiled helmet in the heat of summer was out of the question.
