Bees in the Basement? How (not) to keep bees in college.

I confess. I know I shouldn’t have done it, and yet I did it. People have been telling me not to. They said: “Do you think the bees will resist the conditions?” or “It’s too big of an investment” or “You don’t have the proper training”. None of these minor inconveniences have stopped me. With enough love and determination, anything is possible.

Of course, it wasn’t easy to add this energy-taxing hobby on top of a full load of college courses and a part-time job. However, with a few directions from my mentor, I bought the right equipment, acquired the right type of bees, and was ready to hustle.

After months of hard work and dedication here is the “liquid gold” of the honeybee subspecies (A. m. carpathica):

Just kidding. The bees aren’t in the basement, they’re not real. But the honey is. And it’s 100% Moldovan. Extracted in the countryside, in a place nestled away from the worries of the world where the grass is always green and the sun is shining.

If you want to pamper your tastebuds with this golden nectar of the gods and are in the Connecticut area, sign up to my mailing list below and 3 people picked at random will get a little jar for free. You might just be the lucky one.

Anyone who tried this honey can tell you it’s some of the best they have ever tasted. It’s good for insomnia too – you sleep like a baby afterward.

I hope you weren’t too aggravated by this tongue-in-cheek post. I do not endorse keeping bees in the basement. See you in the next hopefully less silly and more interesting post. 🙂 Keep it light-hearted.
