    Default New From Oklahoma

    Hello Everyone,

    I just joined this forum, and I'm glad to be able to have access to so many people with so much knowledge.

    No hives yet, but I'm planning to put out six next spring. A good friend of mine has 37 hives and is showing me the ropes. Basically, I spend all of my spare time trying to learn about honey bees.

    Thanks for having me here.

    Welcome Ramsey! You would do better to start with 3. Second year you might have 30, but jumping in to six fails more than it succeeds.

    Thanks AB. My plan for starting with six hives is because I have three different places to put two hives. One person grows and sells a lot of produce at a local farmers market. Another is a friend of mine with five acres of grass land and a large garden. I also plan to put two hives on some family land (about 75 acres) with a lot of wooded land and wild blackberries and persimmon trees. Hopefully I'll learn a lot my first year. A good friend of mine has 37 hives and is showing me the ropes. He sells a lot of honey at a large farmers market in Tulsa.

    Thanks SKM. Sorry I took so long to reply. I was without a computer (long story) except at work.
