I have TALKED about getting into this for over 20 years now! (Wow, time flies). Thanks to a good friend and co-worker (devdog108), I was finally given enough insight to take the plunge. I've pestered him for the last 6 months, and watched all the YouTube videos I can find. I've never actually been around bees/hives, so I'm still very excited and somewhat nervous. I just got my two new English garden hives in from Brushy Mtn. though and I can't wait to get started. I'm told I need to get ready to place my spring order soon, so as all this gets closer, I figured this would be a good place to continue my education.
