Hi All! This is my first year keeping bees, and I am very excited to get started. I've spent the last year going to meetings at my local beekeepers association, and just finished bee school at my local association and one on Cape Cod. I finally feel ready, a little impatient even, as the bees won't be here until May 8th. I was going to start with 2 hives, but am so busy that I had to abort the idea and will start with one. This seems like a great web site! I've just been reading everything and am enjoying all the posts. Will check in after the installation.
