Nature Calls

"Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT now
Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the bees,"

Big Yellow Taxi, Joni Mitchell 1970

Been reading my homework for beekeeping class tonight but I have to finish later. It is so interesting. I also read a little from the handbook my great-grandfather used that was published in 1943. I swear it looks like very little about the practice has changed. That is one of the reasons I find it so fascinating. I am excited about learning a craft that has been relatively the same for generations. It is already giving me an appreciation for the work that goes into filling my squeezy bear-shaped bottle of honey.
But I've go to leave now to drive to Miss Erika's web design class. Should I get an apple for the teacher? Or perhaps a Fresh Samantha's?
