    Default Hello from Hobart, IN

    I too am a newbee. Picked up my first package a week ago. My queen is going about raising her brood as hoped. I joined a local beekeepers club and met a lot of good people. We have a lot of open fields around here and expect the local farmers and orchard owners will enjoy the extra help my crew of bees are giving them. I expect the more I learn and the more I reolize I do not know, the more I will be posting.

    Enjoying all the buzz,

    Kenny

    Welcome fellow Hoosier!
    Once the bee is inside, Mr. Veil is no longer your friend.

    Welcome Kenny! From what I've seen of your area, your bees should have plenty of good forage. I have some friends there by the name of Goodpaster who run an old motorcycle shop on Wisconsin Street, so I get to stop by occasionally and have always been impressed by the different types of plants that grow in the area.

    Welcome Kenny, I'm also new to beekeeping. I'm just a little south of you in the Hebron area. I'm starting out with 2 hives split from a local beekeeper. I hope that your bees are doing well. Chris

    Good morning BSACHRIS,
    Next time your are in the area stop by and let me brag about my new friends the bees. I really know very little about them but sure have been having a grand time just sitting out there and watching the flights coming and going.

    Thanks for the kind words of wisdom. I have not yet had the pleasure of having one get in.

    As far as I can tell the whole gang is up and running. Started with one super, than two, now I see the third is going to be needed soon. My new hive only came with honey supers so I am going to go about looking for a grood box. I will ask around at the next club meeting.

    Hi R. Dewhurst,
    I am beginning to see there must be a lot of beekeepers in our NorthEastern section of Hoosier country. Thanks for the greeting.
