Thanks, Michael Bush, I will get to work reading!
Medium boxes it is then. Now I just have to decide, 8 or 10. I like the idea of interchangability.
Day Valley, for all I know I might find myself tripping right into beekeeping this year inspite of my best efforts at self-control.
I'll add "Backyard Beekeeper" to my list of books to get my hands on.
Jonny, that is interesting about looking at things differently. I remember someone telling me that bees might not have enough food available to them on our land. But I thought about how last year something was always in bloom! Then I read that bees prefer to gather from just one kind of flower at a time. Now I am concerned! Will the variety on my land (with not a lot of any one thing) be a problem, I wonder?
Indypartridge, I am not sure, but I think that is the group I am planning to get in touch with. I got an email and a phone number to call. Incidentally, February is also the time for the Dairy Goat Conference.... I hope I can do both!
