This beekeeping thing is really fun. I wish I would have started years ago. Tomorrow will make 3 weeks since I installed 3 packages and everything is going great. I’ve had a few bumps in the road but nothing I’ve not been able to correct. I’m able to work the hives (both Langstroths and 1 TBH) without gloves or even smoke sometimes. I’ve seen no varroa yet and only two SHB which I managed to squish. All 3 hives have capped and uncapped brood, honey, nectar and lots of pollen. All comb is nice and straight. My only gripe is the bee suit is really hot and it’s not even summer yet. I think beekeeping in a white Tshirt is in my near future (I’ll still wear the veil). It is so neat to watch the bees. Here's a pic from my front porch TBH from this weekend. The girls have built 9 combs and less than 3 weeks. Amazing.
