Hello All!! Here is a little about myself. I Graduated college with a horticultural degree and manage a Farm Market. My girl friend has bio-dynamic farm in town where my hives are goign to be located at. I live in South Eastern Pennsylvania, Bucks County. I have been interested in bees for a while and finally made the plunge!!
I Installed 2 packages of Italian Bees from GA on Saturday March 31st. I am using 10 frame hive body with a all in one bottom and the entrance reduced to the smallest setting. I am using the top feeder in both hives.
I have started a blog to document my experiences.... http://www.astonwardblog.com/berts-backyard-bees/
I have read, talked, and taken a but of classes to get prepared but the more information the better!! I have enjoyed the proccess so far and I am already thinking about increasing!
I guess it is official I am a BEEK!!!!
