Hello all! It will take a little bit for me to get used to using the second "e" whenever I use the word "be." Maybe I'll never adapt...Anyway, I'm a new beekeeper (starting my first three hives this Spring). And I've done a lot of the "book work," but have plenty to learn on the practical aspects of keeping bees. I hope to eventually grow it into part of a retirement business (soon to be retired military here), but more so, I am completely fascinated by how bees behave. Looking forward to learning a lot on this forum and maybe contributing from time to time. Thanks!
