Dance of the Honey Bee

I knew the bees were struggling, but everything I’d read last year and my chats with the apiarist at the farmer’s market led me to believe, or at least, hope that they were doing better. But sadly this article from the NY Times last week confirmed what I knew was the reality. To me there is no “mystery” as to why the bees are dying; it’s pretty freaking obvious. I truly hope that forward thinking farmers and apiarists can help combat monoculture crops and their rainbow of pesticides before we lose our honey bees.

For Seattle friends who want to help support our bees check out The Pollinator Pathway project and see what native and even some foreign plants can help encourage our bees. They have a great list of plants and even some garden designs that will make it even easier to get your planting strip bee ready.
