    Default Newbie from Iowa

    Great site, learned a lot from the posts here already. Got one hive started already this year ( my first year beekeeping) and doing well, hopefully have some Nucs on the way and got four bait boxes out. Hoping for a good year.

    Welcome to the site! You are near the Mississippi - is your forage pretty varied around there? I close-minded though of Iowa is mile after mile of cornfield, hopefully that is not the case for you.

    Luckily I am few 100 yards from river on a bluff, lot of wooded areas around and quite the variety of plants. Got lot of honey locust blooming right now and tons of bush honey suckle, crab apple a few weeks ago. See lot more of that corn just little west. It's amazing how beekeeping opens your eyes to local plants. It has for me!

    I agree - when you have this new reason to look, there is so much more to see!
