Finally, at 61, I am finding time to begin indulging my longstanding interest in bees. I live in SW Ohio, climate-zone 5, in a suburb of Cincinnati. A local community garden on a large plot of land has space for a hive or two. I plan to build, buy, read and plan until Spring 2019, and then start my first colonies.
Grateful thanks to the membership here for the useful information in the forums, hive plans, etc.
Hopefully, I will have something to contribute as time goes by.
