I have often wondered the same thing. Doing some research and I have yet to come up with a definitive answer, weather, watering, disease, bolting, curing... not sure, but I am still looking for an answer.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
