I'm new to the forum and beekeeping!
I have sitting in my office two assembled hives and one unassembled hive ... Orderred my bees just outside of Houston for an April 2010 delivery ... Joined the Collin County Hobby Beekeepers Association looking forward to their "hands on" learning program beginning in January ... and have been enjoying various books and dvds on bees!
Ever since I was kid, I've always thought bees were extremely fascinating little creatures. Now I'm in my 40s with 3 kids eager to join the adventure! My Wife, however, is questioning the new hobby in hopes that I might decide to collect stamps instead.
The 2010 apiary will be in Athens, Texas!
