The due diligence of bees

Posted 6/27/2017 6:09am by Shiloh Avery.

I sat for a while yesterday just watching the bees work the flowers. Such diligence!  Efficiently, they move from flower to flower, gathering food while unwittingly completing nature’s work of pollination too.  I wish I were that productive when I ate.  The more flowers, the more bees needed. You are that productive when you eat.  I mean, the more produce you eat, the more we grow, and the more we grow, the more help we need to get all that work done. You can see all seven of us down there from the road—flitting from task to task with the due diligence of bees, an integral cog in the transmission of food from farm to fork.
