Whatever works to have fun.gregv…. No this is a hobby for me. The sport is I pay for things and the process makes me happy. I’m happy to pay for something that works. My 9-5 job funds my happiness of hobby. I don’t need to nickel and dime or your free.99 process. Good luck with it though.😏
Heck, people spend tens of thousands of dollars on their hobby - that's fine and it is their money.
But the beekeeping does not require any of that.
It can be as cheap as you are willing it to be - and that is my point.
Besides, it'd be ridiculous if I spend my kids' college funds for this silly thing.
So I won't.
