As a side note to our cover story, "Honeycomb hideout," I wanted to give credit to the backyard beekeeper who originally inspired our interest. Artist Kim Fox, a former Orlandoan and member of the Lure Design team, is the first person we knew who kept her own bees and processed her own honey; of course, adding her artistic talent into the mix just made it all the better. Fox's Flickr feed displays some of the paintings she made of her apiary paraphernalia, and her own honey jars bear beautifully letterpressed labels.

Also, some readers have wondered where to find Joe Willingham's honey and pollen products — at his company's website, DanskFarms.com, you can sign up for the monthly newsletter to find out which farmers markets he'll be at as well as buy apiary products.
