Why California Almonds Need North Dakota Flowers (And a Few Billion Bees) - by Dan Charles/ All Things Considered/ The Salt - NPR's Food Blog/ NPR.org

This is one of those stories that reminds us that everything really is connected to everything else.

Here's the web of connections: a threat to California's booming almond business; hard times for honeybees in North Dakota; and high corn prices.

This article is interesting to me as my cousin is a bee keeper in nd and sends her bees to ca over the winter. This article just touches the surface of course, but does remind us that all decisions can have long distance consequences.
