I originally started in beekeeping with a few Langstroth hives back some years ago. Unfortunately career and family left no time for the pleasures of spending time with the ladies of the hive and I had to give them up.Now that I'm old and retired I'm getting energized about bees again and have a top bar hive on order. I would prefer to start with two or more colonies but sequestration is dictating that I make cuts in my discretionary spending!!
I'm looking forward to getting to know the members of this forum.
