    Default Florida checking in

    Hey...

    I've always wanted to try bee keeping. Thinking strongly at doing it. Found this forum and will start reading... Youtube has been great as well.

    What got me thinking of starting now? I have a cold right now and I read a few days ago on a Facebook post about Honey and Cinnamon. I gave it a try and it works! I still feel yucky but my throat is relieved for a good period of time. It's easy to buy local honey but as I said, I've been thinking about this for a long time however this is my first step.

    If you are planning to buy bees, you need to identify a vendor and get your order in immediately. Some vendors already have March and April deliveries sold out. Possibly some are completely booked. Past May, your choices will be much more limited, probably only purchasing local nucs or hives, and possibly catching a swarm.
