I'm a new beekeeper, or will be when my package arrives in a couple weeks: I ordered supplies after reading "Beekeepers for Dummies," and then, as I kept reading from other sources (including Beesource, bushfarms), decided against almost everything I'd already purchased, in favor of all mediums, foundationless frames, natural pollen, aiming for small size cells, no chemicals, etc. My dad, a beekeeper for decades, is shaking his head and "waiting to see" how it all comes out. Wish me luck.
