Rusted. Welcome to our forums. A great place to learn, you have been lurking around here you say, that is good, and then now you have actually joined in. We have tons and tons of room for new members to come in and tell us their experiences, ask questions, whatever it is. We do have some really sharp beekeepers here that love to answer questions, ask any question that you need to, if you don't get the answer you are searching for, ask the question again.
What an exciting thing to hive that first package of bees eh? Good for you, and you ain't seen nothin' yet, wait until that spell of the honeybee takes effect, and it has probably already begun to work its magic. Excellent. Have a wonderful and beautiful day, lovin' our life we live. Cindi
