Ever since grade school, I've always wanted to keep bees. When other kids were interested in dinosaurs, I was
interested in insects. I had 3 large bee books in my library for over 30 years. During my younger years,
I was introduced to a local beekeeper named
Karl Wollarth www.independent.com
He had a pick-your-own raspberry and blackberry patch, and sold honey and fruit at the local farmer's markets.
He had several bee hives and also raised chickens. I remember being impressed with his varietal honeys:
avocado, eucalyptus, and lemon. Each was different and delicious.
