    Default Am I a beekeeper yet?

    I read in the "You might be a beekeeper if" thread that beekeepers equipment usually takes up available storage space.
    Well, I just got my equipment for my first year beekeeping, and it is definitely taking up my storage space.

    Is that what it takes to be a beekeeper? Equipment?

    Haha, no. I am just excited to have gotten my equipment. I still have to wait over a month to get the bees.

    If my basement is any indication, there may soon come a day when the gear you have in that picture seems like a very small pile.

    I'm getting squeezed out of my basement, and I've only built and assembled gear for 8 colonies. Just imagine how it piles up for people with 100 colonies - or 1000!!!

    It's a slippery slope. Have fun in your slide!

    I can only hope that I get to a point where it does, haha. Right now most of it isn't even assembled yet, so it will be interesting when it is. I also live in an apartment, so my space is definitely limited.

    Adam: I just noticed that you are from Halifax!! Nice to see somebody else from my area on here!

    Hey Tiwilager,

    I never noticed your location. Where are you in Halifax? We should chat. PM me when you get a chance and we'll connect.
