So im new to the forum and only have had a hive for 1 season. Quite honestly I only have bees to help with my garden...well that's how it started at first now I find its kinda fun and helps round me off as a person. I have been in the military now for 12 years am big into outdoors ie. hunting, camping, shooting and that's why I feel beekeeping as well as stain glass helps round me out as a person. I also do have a medium size garden about 100' x 50', and whats funny is im located in a small town. That's my little bio I hope to learn a lot as I come online here.
