I am from the middle of Iowa. I used to keep bees, but due to job constraints I had to quit when it became more than a hobby. My back still hurts. I want to start again using TBH and promise to keep it as a hobby this time!! I have lots of questions, and love talking about bees. I will be retiring in about 5 months so I can devote lots of time to the girls!! Talk to you all soon.
