I found this site today and it looked like I could learn a lot here so I joined up. I live about 15 miles south of Indianapolis. I have 4 nucs ordered and a wonderful hubby who has been busy in the woodshop building hives. This will be my first year. I got bit by the "bee bug" last year after watching the hives a friend of ours brought out to our produce farm. WooWee! Were we ever swimming in cucumbers last year and the pear trees were loaded! We also have a nice sized strawberry patch and will be planting raspberries this year. The bees should like that huh? I am looking forward to my first year as a beekeeper instead of just a beewatcher.
