    Default Hello from NC

    New beekeeper from Gastonia, NC
    Actually, my ex and I had 2 hives for about 2 seasons 15 years ago and now I'm on my own, wanting to try this bee thing again. I'm a retired journalist, a current licensed massage therapist and looking at retiring this fall.

    So interesting to see that there are about as many ways to keep bees as there are beekeepers. I'm hoping to rein in my tendency to over-think things and am planning a no-chemicals, horizontal hive, foundationless frame approach.

    Welcome from just north of you. Gaston Co seems to have a good beekeeping club and you're always welcome to attend Lincoln Co beekeepers meetings which are great. From what I've heard, there are more treatment free beeks in Lincoln than in Gaston.

    GOOD LUCK

    Thanks! I think I will make the trip up to Lincolnton in March for the meeting. Who's a good supplier nearby for TF bees? There's a Gaston meeting tonight I'm going to try to make, too.
