Cosmic Tortoise

Rational exploration of philosophy, stories, ideas; musical performances; the sensible and the nonsensical; everything between and beyond.

Royce is a beekeeper and good friend of mine. We go really deep into bees, honey making and everything to do with beehives and chat a bit about fermented foods and goats.

I think this converstaion would be a useful introduction for anyone seriously thinking about getting involved in beekeeping.
