I am lucky lol..it also counts for my Education hours for Master Gardener. I am so nervous. Would hate to mess them up. Only have a couple of months to get this down and get over being so nervous. Then the bees come lol..

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

I am not a beekeeper yet lol..just taking a 2 month course. It is something I have always been interested in. I have an aunt with a farm so I believe I can put a couple of hives out there.

I used to run 50 hives , 25 of which were overwintered . Also had 25 neuc boxes used to grow sell instant bee starter swarms on brood box sized frames. I used to sell home grown queens as well .

There is a fantastic book by a guy called Ray Huber or similar.
He's a Canadian and his style of bee keeping is a commercial one so you can bet there is no witchcraft theories or stupid ideas in it. It it all translates well into backyard keeping for a couple of hives.
