    Default Hello from Duvall, WA

    I'm a new beekeeper - having introduced my first bees to my new hive on 16 April. So far they seem to be doing well.

    I live on a hobby farm in Duvall, Washington, which is about 35 min Northeast of Seattle. Other hobbies include vegtable gardening and beer making. And I usually go off on a dog sled trip once a year too.

    So far the bees seem to be doing great. I've been checking their sugar syrup daily, and opened the hive only once so far to take out the queen cage. I'm looking forward to my first real exploration next weekend, where I hope to see some larvae.

    Folks here have been great, on the forums and in the chat. I really appreciate the guidance!
