My father gave me a beehive when I was 10. It was a great experience and I gained a great deal of respect for that crowd of little creatures. Plus the honey was fantastic.
Fast forward 38 years and I'm ready to introduce my 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter to the sport of beekeeping. Our package arrives in April and we're in the midst of building our hive from scratch (except the frames). I appreciate the benefit a forum like this provides to people like me: lots of questions and more questions after that.
Looking forward to our first (of a few) hives!
