    Default Hello from KY

    Hello to everyone. My wife and I are of course new to beekeeping. We recently moved to KY from NC and Susan commented she had always wanted to keep bees. I read the book beekeeping for Dummies and I was hooked. We have joined Bluegrass beekeepers and tomorrow I pick up my hives at Walter T. Kelley. Last Saturday we took a Beekeeping 101 course at Walter T. Kelley and I gotta say it was top notch. We are both very excited about 2010 and I am sure we will be posting many questions over the next year.

    Smile Welcome from West KY

    Hello from Ballard County (just outside Paducah in extreme West KY). The schools are top notch, we really enjoyed and learned a lot a couple of years ago. Last year was too busy cleaning up the ice storm mess to attend the schools but looking forward to this year. Good luck, and remember things may not go as you expect the first year, if not, just hang in there, ask a lot of questions and enjoy the hobbie.

    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I appreciate the training info and plan on taking advantage of it. I picked up my hives yesterday and will start the assembly this weekend.
    Thanks again and looking forward to a long and rewarding beekeeping experience.
