    Default Hello from NH

    This is my first year keeping bees. I have two colonies of Russian bees and hope to get some honey this year. Any advice on books to read or advice in general would help.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Getting honey your first year is usually 'iffy'. You'll want to talk to some local beeks to find out how much honey to leave on the hive for them to overwinter on.

    Are you involved with a local beekeeping club? Clubs are good places to find mentors and get connected to local beeks. Looks like you're not far from the Seacoast Beekeepers:

    I also recommend reading the posts in the 'How to Start Beekeeping' subforum. Lots of good info there.
