As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Liquid Gold by Roger Morgan-Grenville
This book came out in 2020, and the subtitle is Bees and the Pursuit of Midlife Honey.
Thor Hanson, the author of Buzz, said this about Roger’s book:
“Beekeeping builds from lark to revelation in this carefully observed story of midlife friendship. Filled with humor and surprising insight, Liquid Gold is as richly rewarding as its namesake. Highly recommended.”
Roger writes about meeting his friend Duncan in a pub. And on a chance decision, they resolve to become beekeepers. Ignorant but eager, the two learn, through their mistakes and their friendship, how to care for bees and become master beekeepers.
After two years, they have more honey than they can personally use. The experience teaches them resilience, along with a newfound appreciation for nature and a desire to protect the honeybee from increased threats and extinction.
Humorous and informative, Liquid Gold is an uplifting and educational story about humans and bees, making it pure gold for your summer reading.
This book is 272 pages of an honest journey to beekeeping between two unlikely friends.
