Hi everyone, just getting started in bee keeping. So far so good, plenty to learn and keep you busy. Got my first hive last March as a gift and have added one more. Right now and so far things going good. Started a small carpentry shop to build my own hive parts, I enjoy the wood working as much as working the bees. I have made my first trip to Walter Kelly for frames and foundation and have plenty to keep me busy until spring. Looking forward to warm weather and adding more hives. Merry Christmas to all !!
