    Default Hello from Battleground Washington

    New to this forum and to beekeeping. I've been reading up on beekeeping, attending classes, and watching videos on CD and on Youtube. Put together a Top Bar hive from a kit and installed Italian bees in it 2 weeks ago.

    We have 2 acres in Battleground WA, in southwest WA. We have been overseeding lawn with clover and wild flowers, have a small mini-orchard, and fence rows filled with blackberries. This is a rural area but not a lot of big-acreage farming here. Somewhat woodsy.

    Still learning. Steep learning curve here. Mostly I want to learn more about the bees, how to keep them and help them flourish, and get some sweet honey along the way.

    "Somewhat woodsy" around Woodland...isn't that kinda like saying, "It's slightly damp here in winter?"

    I am in Boring, just across the river from you. I work at the airport across the Columbia from you.
