hi everyone. great to be a new beek. I have two hives, a pkg started in late April and a nuc installed a couple weeks ago. I'm using 8 frame langstroth equipment. So far so good, can't wait for the stickers and dandies to start blooming ...mike
Welcome. Do a search for "Western Washington", there's a thread we update from time to time. The first dandelion bloom is already over, and most of us at lower exposed elevations already have blackberries in bloom. My hives at the forest edges are a week away from berry bloom, but they're already going strong on the roadside ditches and fence lines.
