Seven inches of snow, sleet, ice pellets and rain is on the way. Temperatures hover in the 30s. We haven’t seen the sun in days. But dag’gammit, the new honey bee hive hosts have bee hives in their backyards! Thanks to everyone who decided to host a hive this year. I know the permit process is a long and arduous task. Your love of honey bees saw you through, and now you’re hosting your very own hive. A thousand thank yous, and tens of thousands of thank yous from all the honey bees that have a place to live!

Spring is glorious. It is also like a baseball bat to the face for allergy sufferers. Luckily Big Pharma has made it easy for you to take Allegra, Benadryl, Claritin, Chlor-Trimeton, Dimetane, Zyrtec, Tavist, Ocu-Hist, Clarinex, Xyzal, Astelin, Patanol, Elestat or Optivar to help you find minor, temporary relief. Luckily these medications are also very expensive, to help you convince yourself of their effectiveness.
Unfortunately, the alternative is an affordable, natural, delicious way to help your body form a robust resistance to allergies. It boosts the health of your entire immune system and tastes like candy for the gods. If that wasn’t bad enough, buying it from a local source helps support the local economy and supports a systematic network that improves the environment and the food system that we rely on to live.
