    Default New guy from KY

    Hi everyone. I'm glad I found this website. I am relatively new to bee keeping and come up with questions all the time. I live in north central KY and currently my father in-law and myself have 15 hives. Im also in the starting years of growing berries commercially. That's about it in a nutshell.

    Welcome CynCityBee. I am also pretty new to the forum, which is a great resource! An almost overwhelming amount of education!
    I am just up the road from you outside of Crittenden, and have bought/am building homes for the bees I plan buy in the spring.
    Here is an invite for you and you f-i-l to join us at the Kentucky Backyard Beekeepers club, which meets in Williamstown, and the extension office the second monday of every month, 7PM. A good mix of experienced patient beeks and us new-bees.
    I'm not as good as I once was...

    Mtnmanky:
    Thanks for the invite. I will deffiantly try and make it to the meetings.

    Hemichuck:
    I attended the confrence at KY state this past year and deffiantly plan on attending again in 2011. I also jumped in feet first. Last year my F-I-L had 4 hives and all was lost through the winter. This year we started out with nothing and currently have 15 and only 4 were packages (actually its 3 now as 1 of the packages is currently in the process of getting merged with another colony that was aquired late in the year and needed some help). Looking forward to putting some faces with some of the names.


    Until next time....Keep your head up and your bee jacket pulled down!
