Re: Magazine Must Have!
It's flashy and colorful and has some information for the new beek. I purchased the 2011 edition last year when I first started studying bees but wasn't overly impressed with it, though I can't recall what my issue with it was...for some reason I'm thinking it came over as just a really basic magazine with decent information but some good photos. I will not be purchasing the 2012 edition.
From what I can tell by searching online the cover of the 2011 and 2012 covers have different pictures on them but yet have the same articles listed...one exception is that the article title with the largest/boldest font "__+ KEYS TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR BEES" has changed from 67+ to 75+ keys. I guess they found a copy of CC Miller's 50 Years on google and got a few more tips.
Sorry to be negative about the Grit publication, but it appears (like many others) they are simply cashing in on the recent increased interest in beekeeping.
