I just recently purchased my dream home in Sierra Vista, AZ on an acre of land. I'm an avid gardner and in the intrest of higher yeilds I started learning about honeybees. Holy smokes I'm hooked! I've read pretty much anything I can get my hands on and I'm going to buy the hives this year. Not sure if it's too late to start a hive though so for now I'm holding off on getting bees (unles I can get 'em cheap and local!) I'm new to the subject so any pointers would be appreciated! My main mission these days is trying to scout out a beekeeping mentor. If you're willing to train me and you're local, I'm willing to work! I'm eager to learn and willing to work long hours if need be just for a couple nuggets of wisdom and some experience. Thanks in advance for all you veteran beekepers who are going to point me in the right direcition!
