    Default Hello from socal (camarillo)

    Hi
    Started with some chickens, than a vegetable garden and a worm bin.
    I then started reading about pollination.
    Some bees suddenly landed underneath our shed.
    Let a beeman come over and he did a cutout.
    link to large picture of 'my first hive' TM

    A new world opened up for me!

    Now have a first hive in our garden.

    Willing/eager to learn a lot. This forum seems like a great source of information

    *update*
    Sorry for my poor choice of words in the earlier version. Information was incomplete

    Welcome to the site!

    I've always wanted to keep a compost bin and a worm bin. Wife is open to the compost, but I don't know what I'm doing. Wife isn't very open to the worm bin, she says I have enough "bugs." I can't really blame her.

    Haha...
    Of all the "bugs" in the garden, the worms are imho the least annoying.
    easy to handle etc.
    They produce great soil for germinating seeds.
    Works like a charm!
