Hi everyone, we are new beekeepers in Eugene, Oregon. We have one hive and a big garden, as well as a neighborhood filled with flowers of all varieties. We are very excited to have our bees and are lucky to have a wonderful beekeeper mentor who has helped us so much.
We started with a nuc hive, which turned out to be very robust, so we transferred them into a deep just a few days after we got them. We are getting ready to check the deep this week and see if they have filled the five empty frames, in which case we'll add another one.
We have thought about doing this for a few years, and thanks to our mentor's encouragement and help, took the plunge this spring.
I look forward to browsing the forums and learning from all the participants. Thank you!
