    Default Hi from NY

    Hi,

    this is my second year keeping bees and I'm really having fun with it. I've got two full-sized colonies (2 deeps each) and one nuc that I'm hoping to build up before winter. I pulled the honey last week and am letting the girls take advantage of the goldenrod and aster we have in bloom right now.

    I plan to get a couple more nucs next spring and expand the bee yard a bit. I've got all winter to read and learn, which is exactly why I'm here.

    Welcome! I just joined the forum yesterday, and I, too, am from NY. I live between Buffalo and Rochester, and am somewhat of a newbee.

    How do you find them (clients), or, how do they find you?

    What do you charge for your time?

    I'm interested in picking up some side work next summer. Don't worry, I'm far enough from you I won't be getting any of your business.
