I thought rooftop beekeeping was something new. Not so! Here’s an article about a rooftop apiary circa 1912. Fascinating!!

I love Halloween, especially the pumpkin carving. Last year I carved the bee pumpkins above!
It’s easy and fun! All you have to do is find a template you like and print it out. Below are some suggestions. As you can see, your design can be as simple or as complicated as you wish. You can also design your own!
Remove the seeds, pulp and flesh of your pumpkin. Tape the template to the pumpkin and poke holes along the outlines. Make the holes close together so you can see the design clearly when you remove the template.
Then, carefully using a sharp knife, cut out your design. Add a light and enjoy your Bee-utiful Pumpkin!
