Where can I get my honey?

"I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?" ~Robert Redford

Something I've noticed that I'm not particularly happy about is that there seems to be a honey shortage. I don't have any particular research to support this apart from my own inability to find honey to buy at local groceries. There's also the fact that one branch of our local fast food chains told me there'd be no honey mustard anymore because they can't get any honey.

I love honey. There was a time when I didn't but that was a very long time ago. It tastes good... and is most healing. I'd like to be able to buy a bottle at my grocery but.. alas. I'm currently trying to ration the bottle that I'm using at home. Cute guy and I bought it on the way to Sangre Grande in March... I don't want to have to always be searching for my bottle of honey.

Prices have been increasing as well. I should have started stockpiling when the price of honey started rising.

Got this article in my email: The Staggering Plight of the Honeybee... eep? Is this happening in Trinidad and Tobago as well? Must do research. Must find out what's happening.

I want more honey!

I can't remember the last time I visited cedros :s but yes.. will go on hunt for honey.

The bottle I bought in Valencia is from an apiary in Rio Claro... so I'm thinking there should be selling in that area as well.
