Some of the bee deaths are attributed to Colony Collapse Disorder, some to the overuse of chemicals, and some to the...
  3. General Chat
    As a means of promoting urban agriculture, our city recently passed an ordinance which permits bee keeping. One can have up to 2 hives. Do you keep bees? How many hives do you have? Do you have any general comments about bee keeping?

He said we have cutter bees, which apparently do not eat the leaves, they use them to make nests. Recent storms have torn up their nests, so they are building new ones. He did not know...

    Do you change what you grow? some plants need bees and some don't. I was wondering if anyone knew which ones needed the bees and which ones didn't. I think tomatoes and squash do but what other do and don't. Carrots don't.
