    Default Hello from Missouri

    Hello everyone, my name is Julie and I've been keeping bees for about five years now. My husband and I own an apple orchard of about 350 trees and I was
    attracted to beekeeping for the pollination factor, but fell in love with the little creatures and, well, you understand . My husband and I are retired (we thought), I was a RN and he was in the IT field. He helps with lots of the heavy lifting and extracting and just all round support lol. We have five children, ten grandchildren, four dogs and five horses. Every year is a new adventure with having bees. There are always new challenges and frustrations, but also delights and learning opportunities. I love my girls!

    I have four hives and we've had great pollination. Even when I first started out with two hive we had good results. The trees are on about 2 1/2 acres. Semi-dwarf.

    Welcome to Beesource!

    I have two (2) dwarf apple trees, and about 330 raspberry and thornless blackberry plants. It was the berries that led me to beekeeping.

    Wow, that's a lot of berries! I have thornless blackberries, but only a fifty foot row, plenty to keep me in preserves for the year. The bees sure do love them, so I can imagine how busy your girls get when bloom is on. Thank you for the welcome!

    I have a lot of respect for Bob. He's a member of the Boone Regional Beekeepers and I like to here his opinion on things. This year has started off a lot wetter than last year and I'm hoping for a good honey harvest finally.
