    Good morning,

    My name is John and I have been keeping bees in my backyard for a little more than a year now. I have two hives that I hope will make it trough the winter this year. I have a local mentor that has been a great friend and a wealth of knowledge. I still continue to read, listen, and watch as much as I can to stay informed and better ways to do things.

    My plans for my membership of this forum is to read and learn more. I probably will post little but on occasion I might post something or answer questions that I am 100% that I know that I can. But I will try to contribute as much as I can.

    Recently (for the last year or so) I have been watching videos of Michael Palmer and really enjoy what he has to say. His wealth of knowledge is vast. I would love to see a book written by him so that this information continues to be available.

    My day job now is a United States Naval Sailor and this keeps me from really expanding my apiary much. I one day do plan on going much larger after my time in the Navy. But until that day comes I really do not want more than 10 hives plus a few nucs.

    I am excited to read and see what kind of information there is out there. See you around.

    John H.

    Welcome John.

    Many have asked Michael P to write a book, but at the present, I think he is busy with his bees. Another Michael (Bush) does have a book and it is a wealth of knowlege whether you are TF or not.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    Welcome. 2nd year. Michael Palmer posts here on occasion which is a treat. I’ve been following A Canadian Beekeepers Blog on YouTube. Highly recommended. He’s bringing his bees inside for winter as we speak.
    I'm smart but at the end of the day I'm still the help.
