Re: Newbie with no-bees from Ohio
Welcome! This has been my first year keeping bees. Like you, I started over the winter and took a beginner's course over the winter. Although I had read extensively, that course brought up even more questions and the rest of the winter was spent learning yet more. I am still learning, and always will be. In school year equivalents, I am maybe now (almost) in 3rd grade.
Being an active member of a club has been the single best thing I have done. There, talking to others, I begin to better understand everything that I have read. More importantly, I can get a better appreciation of those things I've read that actually apply well in my area.
