    Just considering beekeeping at the moment. Not sure this is what I want to do yet. Lurking and reading at the moment.

    If you love bees, go for it.
    If you love money from bees, re-think about it.

    Thanks for all the welcomes! We're looking to do this just for us.....no money makers here. We had a LOT of bees here at one time in the neighborhood and the man who maintained the hives was simply amazing. Well, he died and his family sold off his hives. My nephew took a couple and tried to re-start it all, but then he got transferred to Ohio taking his hives with him.

    Last year, we couldn't get decent honey in the neighborhood. We use a lot of honey, so we figured we'd just try to make our own. Nothing huge....we're thinking about 4 hives to start with.

    We're nowhere near ready for actually DOING this, but are ready to learn more to see if this is something we CAN or WANT to do, so this site will be very helpful for us, I'm sure.
