After a year of listening to my step-dad's exploits with bees, I just couldn't resist getting into it. I have six Italian extremely docile hives in Carpinteria, CA at the moment. I'm probably going to disperse them to several friends' places throughout the county. I'm excited to learn more and if I ever get a bumper harvest of honey try brewing some mead.
I do socially responsible investing during the day, so I'm looking at this hobby as a nice way to decompress a bit after work when there's no surf.
