Taken from his popular blog, the Surrey Beekeeper, James Dearsley presents the first personal, accessible account of the experience of learning how to harvest bees

Beekeeping . . . oh my . . . what have I done? I am 30 years old, I have been married for three years and am a new father to a fantastic little boy. Surely there are things that I should be doing at this age which do not involve little yellow and black insects that can hurt you if you are remotely clumsy (which at 6ft 5, I have an amazing ability to be).

James Dearsley's wife thought he had lost his mind when he announced his intention to become a beekeeper. But like many interested in the self-sufficient lifestyle, he loved gardening and growing vegetables in his garden and the old romantic in him had idealistic notions of teaching his little boy where honey came from, so he set himself what seemed a reasonable goal: to get, in a year's time, just one jar of honey.

Review:

"This adventure in beekeeping will appeal to those with a penchant for all things British and to beginning beekeepers, particularly, and experienced beekeepers, generally." —Library Journal

"Gardeners will appreciate [Dearsley's] love of nature. His story is as sweet as honey on toast, which he develops a taste and an affection for as he gets to know his bees." —Garden Ideas & Outdoor Living, special interest publication from Better Homes & Gardens
