Hello all,

Last year I started with 4 hives, total 560 pounds. Beginers Luck for sure!
I would like to know how many you started with, and how you grew in hive numbers to where you are at now.
Any do's and dont's. Best way to expand- keep buying new hives in spring or splits or other....?
Also, any pitfalls and or recommendations to someone wanting to expand.

I appreciate your stories,
