It's a beautiful sunny day here in northern Virginia and time I got around to introducing myself to this fine forum. This is my third year of beekeping and I have progressed from 1 Langstroth to 2 then 1 died last winter and now I have 1 top bar hive and 2 Langstroths. The top bar is the best doing ofthe bees this season. Worries with the other two as they try to re-queen themselves. It's also my fifth year of gardening and the sunflowers are coming in fine right now. I hope the honey bees love them as much as I do. I look forward to being a helpful participant.
