If you look closely, you'll see that the beekeeper is a Mr Mole (and he is a real person). You couldn't make this up if you tried.

Look, look look! This is genuine Isle of Dogs honey. The hives are kept on the roof of the school where John gardens. Just think - the nectar for this honey may have been collected from his hollyhocks or sedum or knautia or verbascum or mullein or sunflowers or yucca flowers. Or maybe they even got as far as our allotment on the other side of Millwall Park. And let me tell you, this honey tastes very special indeed, not overly sweet, slightly minty to start with, then a richer flavour that I can only think is the result of the variety of flowers those bees have visited. Too good to cook with, it will have to be eaten with something very plain in order to appreciate it, maybe just straight from the spoon.
