Michael, information primarily. Friendship with his father secondary. The first year paid for itself today in education riding around with him teaching me what will build the hives in the precitrus bloom here.
mathispollenators, Citrus tower? Excuse me please, but us old time locals call that the Yankee tower now. I am about 15 miles west of it. I live next to an orange grove and there are several hundred acres of citrus around me. After the citrus I know a man that that has acres of saw palmetto on it and am going to try to put them there. Seems as though a pound or two of honey sweetens a lot of people up. I haven't paid a dime for the onion sets or seed in my garden yet this year (1 pint). The red Pontiac potatoes (50 lbs) are a little more. 3 pints this Jan/Feb.
Its going to depend on whether or not he needs the land as to putting them here or not.
