    My other hobbies are lapidary work and I am a metalsmith as well


    Looking forward to reading through the threads and learning

    Welcome. I suggest you edit your profile to identify your location, and always keep the location in mind when considering any expressed opinions. North Dakota winters are much nicer than frigid Minnesota, but neither of us can follow calendar-based advice from California, Virginia, or even Rhode Island.

    Welcome to Beesource Ali. The adage that "all beekeeping is local" is very true.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    Welcome to Beesource! I don't envy you having to make the transition from California to Minnesota, especially this time of year .

    I had to look up 'lapidary'- so this is analogous to being a gemsmith?

    Best of success to you as you develop your apiary. There are a lot of very wise and helpful beekeepers on here from Northern climes who will have good advice for your locale.

    Hi Russ

    Thank you for the welcome

    The transition has been fun, but I grew up here so am use to it

    I guess you could say gemsmith

    No worries about that- it can certainly be tricky. I think lapidary is a much fancier word- just had to dumb it down for simple folk like myself.

    I'll look forward to reading about your adventures. Best of luck to you this year.
