Your Own Private Honey Box
While most of your more dare-devilish hobbies (lion taming, scorpion breeding) don’t yield anything but great photos and enough adrenaline to kill a large anaconda (you’ve tamed them too—not as tough as they look), here’s something that’s not just fun, but offers sweet returns—the Backyard Beehive ($400). Become a beekeeper overnight with this complete set, which comes with a custom-designed wooden hive, comprised of three boxes and eight frames with beeswax-coated Rite-Cell foundations, plus everything else you need for your newfound pastime, like an adjustable vented helmet with a veil (muy importante), heavy duty gloves, a wooden been brush, stainless steel hive tool for lifting, prying, and scraping, plus an entrance feeder. This summer, everything you eat will be drizzled in natural, raw, home-grown honey. Boo-ya!
