This review is from: Homemade Living: Keeping Bees with Ashley English: All You Need to Know to Tend Hives, Harvest Honey & More (Hardcover)
I have been waiting for this book to be published ever since I purchased the first two books in Ashley English's "Homemade Living" series. I have been researching bee keeping for about a year now, mostly because I plant a garden every year and would like to give it a boost, but also because I am fascinated by honeybees and would like to have my own honey source. I love this book because it is packed with great information but is not overwhelming. English tackles the most important lessons of beekeeping and stays on task. After reading this, I definitely think I can manage a couple of hives, and I am really excited to get started. Bottom line: if you're thinking about keeping bees, read this book first.
