Image Spotlight: Mindy03 (Margaret Tucker)
By Sharon Brown on August 29, 2011

Sometimes we meet people who remind us of our childhood, so it was with Margaret. She asked me to edit an article she'd written about beekeeping. I found myself transported right back to my grandfather's mountain where he kept bees many years ago. I wanted to know more about Margaret, I think you'll enjoy knowing her, too.

Thanks for sharing your story with us, Mindy. I enjoy your articles, too. I use locally produced honey every day--thank goodness for beekeepers.

Glad you are enjoying the articles Renee. I enjoy the research and writing of them. Honey from a local beekeeper is much better tasting than the store bought stuff. Thank you for supporting your local beekeeper. Smiling

We buy local honey too. There is an extracting business in our town. We buy from them or from our local food co-op.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

We got them in April last year. He did treat them for mites last year but says he's not giving them anything this year because they are healthy and no signs of mites.

I really don't see as they need antibiotics since their honey, pollen and propolis all contain natural antibiotics. I suppose bees living where there's not much choice in flowers or those stressed from being moved around to pollinate crops or those in an area where pesticides are used a lot might need help from antibiotics.

There are herbal medicines out to treat them with if you don't want to use chemical based medicines.

i see. i had bees that lived in my garage for years. when i had the garage rebuilt i tried to save them but the whole hive ended up dying. i have grieved for the bees since. i wish i had just given them to bee keepers instead of trying to keep them here. where do you post your photos?
