Just a quick hello! I really enjoy reading the forums! Recently joined my local beekeepers club and have two mentors who are showing me the basics in their apiaries. Recently got my bee-suit and a few other items. I have read two bee books cover to cover. I plan on using this year as a training/observation year, then get a minimum of two hives next year. Im a big time home brewer and plan to make some mead eventually, however, this is not what got me interested in beekeeping. See ya on the forums!!
