Strawberry Ice Cream Threat

In spite of my wife’s allergic reaction to bee stings, we both do appreciate the site of bees feeding in our garden. Of course, they help use have great strawberries! But they also feed on other flowers we grow, and it is satisfying to know that the garden we built for our own enjoyment is good bee habitat.

There is some thought that mono-culture in agriculture has made life stressful for bees, as this story from the SF Chronicle explains. Bee populations are falling quickly, which can have big implications on the world food supply. There is also a great link here to a site for bee promotion, which is interesting reading from a gardening perspective..
