What do you know about bee keeping?”

That is how my uncle greeted me the other day… and was the inspiration to writing this My Week on Wednesday post. Because the answer was, honestly, “nothing.”

I admit that bees are one of the animals that we have considered adding to our little homestead because–let’s face it–as city dwellers our livestock choices are pretty limited. Besides bees, we’ve considered rabbits and chickens; our neighbor requested ducks, but I’m not sure ducks are for me!

But bees… aside from the fact that they are pointy little critters, they might be an excellent choice.

So… I gathered up some posts from my friends over at the Homestead Bloggers Network and some of my other favorite bloggers, and this is what I found out.

Have you ever considered adding bees to your homestead? Learn why it might be a good choice for you, plus what you need to go to get started and other bee-friendly options if you ultimately decide bees aren't right for you.

Okay. That was dorky, wasn’t it?

But, seriously, there are a lot of really good reasons to take up bee keeping.

So… now you’ve decided to keep bees. Here is some more information… about the ins and outs. And harvesting honey! Which really is one of the key reasons to keep bees in the first place.

What if Beekeeping Isn’t Right for Me?

No worries! You can still bring pollinators to your yard. You can provide flowers and safe places for bees. You can even build a mason bee house! Mason bees are friendly (the males don’t even have stingers!) native pollinators. They don’t make honey, but they are a great thing to have in your yard.

From the Farm Blog Hop… April 29

From the Farm Blog Hop

Happy Friday, and welcome to another From the Farm Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us this week, and we can’t wait to see what you’ll be sharing with us!!!

You guys, I am really sorry about last week. Sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning my dog, Luna, ate something that made her very sick. At first we thought rat poison… but then the vet thought maybe she ate a mushroom, or that the culprit was a mold or fungus growing in last year’s leaves! Whatever it was, she spent all day Thursday in the vet’s office, and for a while, they really thought she was going to die. But she didn’t, and she spent Thursday night on the couch with me watching Vampire Diaries (don’t judge) for the whole night… because she needed to be monitored. I brought her back to the vet on Friday for fluids… and she came home that night, tired, but with a clean bill of health! Luna // Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers

So… while I didn’t exactly forget about you, there just wasn’t anything I could do about it!!!

I know you guys forgive me. :)

Also, I forgot Earth Day. But it turns out everyone forgave me for that, too, because the most popular Quote of the Day on my Facebook page  was the quote I meant to put up for Earth Day, but actually put up a few days later. :)

It’s one of my favorites!!!

Did you miss me last week? I was so sick and miserable that it wasn’t until Monday that I realized I forgot to put up the From the Farm Blog Hop! Luckily, my cohosts were more on top of things and less sick, so the hop did take place. Just not here! Oops!

Also, the Quotes of the Day suffered last week. So I’m just going to use this one, which, if not exactly a favorite quote, is one I think of often. Be sure to check out my Facebook page  for the Quote of the Day–the most popular will become the Quote of the Week.
