well, technically I'm not a beekeeper - yet! As they just passed a very bee-friendly city ordinance making it easy to have bees in the city and county of Denver, I have decided to take the plunge next spring with two hives in my back yard not far from the capital building downtown. In the meantime, I am planning and studying. So much interesting stuff! I thought it would be cool to have two different types of hives and see how they each do.
