I'm currently not a beekeeper, but eventually I'd love to be. I've always been interested but until recently nothing really pulled together.
About six months ago I noticed a neighbor in my subdivision had a "filing cabinet" in their yard behind their shed. I wondered if it was actually related to bees but since our communtiy is very wide spread I'm not familiar with the people so I never stopped by. However, I figured it out once I saw someone out in full garb over the hive one day.
More recently, at work, one of the guys brought some honey in for a lady I work with. Though I haven't had a chance to speak with Mike I know him well enough so eventually I'll be able to track him down and pick up some tips/info.
Today after work I got online and actually found that there is a local beekeepers association right in my town. I emailed the head of the association and am waiting to hear back from him. Shortly thereafter I found this site... so here I am
