    Default Hello from Santa Cruz County, CA

    Hello everyone
    I have been reading all I can, visited a few hives and signed up for a class. My brother handed over all the equipment with 3 hives...lots of shallow honey supers (that is what the 4 inchers are called, correct?) - eight of these
    The foundations are the pre-wired wax type. I haven't yet tried to assemble this
    The deeper 9 inches or so? brood boxes - I have three of these..
    There is one hive kit still in a box...
    Extractor (hand crank), smoker, suit, hive tool, and one frame that has the round plastic foundation (I am guessing for taking these and selling comb/honey.

    I will put together the kit, paint the boxes (only 1 hive was out and painted) and place a hive or two in our backyard.
    I have a friend who has acreage and is allowing me to place some there as well..(He is 15 minutes away)

    I am signed up for a class in August. I was told I could start in August, thinking I should of started early spring. We are in a very mild climate.

    Looking forward to learning more.

    Hi Larry,
    Welcome from Concord. Sounds like a score on the equipment.
