    Default Howdy from Plant City Florida

    Hello,
    Yep it's more "newbies" joining the forum.
    My wife and I just took the first step to beekeeping.We attended the monthly bee workshops at the University of South Florida Botanical Gardens taught by one of the members here on the forum Americasbeekeeper.We've only attended one class in January so far,and I'm afraid it's like we say down here in Florida "Like getting sand in your shoes",one class and we were hooked.
    I'm new to the forum ,but not to forums in general.I played the role of both administrator and moderator on several other non-related forums over the years.Seems like a great bunch here and hope to learn from experience.

    Thank you. I am glad to be a small part and get you addicted to this wonderful adventure. We will be talking about different hive designs and the choices available from me in the afternoon next workshop. I will send out the learning objectives closer to the course date. Thanks again.

    yes there quite a few from the greater PC area, there is a huge database on this site, you will find yourself doing a search for info, and finding an answer to a question you had not thought of, but keep in mind beekeeping is local, there is a big difference in geographic locations

    Bob, you nailed it,because one of the more confusing issues I have learning beekeeping is how do I know what's going on in my geographic location and what to do.


    Mtedcarr4, Thanks for the invitation to the Ridge Beekeepers Association.I went to the site and have the date and time and will try to make the next scheduled meeting.I saw where a pot luck dinner is served and so it seems I'll get dinner and a show.
    I'll be attending the Tampa Bay Beekeepers Association this Thursday.

    Welcome! I live in TN but have kinfolk in Thonotosassa, near Plant City. Lots of orange trees around! You ought to be able to get some good honey in your area. Best wishes to you.
