Both my hives this year – one due to winter, one due to a bear. I'm really sad about it and still mourning it. However, I will get back into beekeeping again.
Both of my hives were at a rural farm, but this time, I will seriously consider urban beekeeping in just my backyard. I live by a lake and there are so many random flowers. My neighbors have so many flowers and small vegetable gardens. Interestingly, I think there are so many more food sources in an urban environment than at a rural farm.
What do you think? Would you choose urban over rural?
