Backyard Bees is the ultimate guide to installing and maintaining a hive through the seasons. Learn how easy it is to keep happy, healthy bees, and how and when to harvest the liquid gold. Backyard Bees includes extensive advice on choosing a hive and the equipment you need; case studies and anecdotes from beekeepers; and 20 delicious recipes for all that honey, from Toasted Honey Granola to Bees Knees Cocktails.
