I've been keeping bees for a couple of years now — I have been interested in it ever since I heard about Colony Collapse Disorder. It turns out that a lot of people keep bees in an urban environment; in fact, I first found out about urban beekeeping from the leader of the old Bay Area NeXT Group that I attended shortly after NeXT bought Apple. :-)
Anyhow, my hives hadn't been that prodigious — I had a tiny harvest this spring — but this fall, I managed to harvest about 2½ gallons of the sweet stuff! Should be enough to give a few jars to our neighbors and top off our pancakes for the rest of the year!
