« on: July 03, 2008, 12:50:39 PM »
Hello my name is Polly, my husband  and I decided to try beekeeping. and it so far has been very fun and we have learned alot. We bought 2 packages  & caught 2 swarms and honey is in the making..4 hives so far. We have an 8 acre lot with cows and horses, they don't mind the bees so far. I hope this is where I can ask lots of ??'s and help if I can. thank you for the site and happy bees....

Seems pretty self explanatory :shock:

Polly, welcome to our forum, what a beautiful name, and one that is not very common, beauty.  This will be a place where you can spend time, tell us your experiences and tales, living on a farm, you will have many.  You have cows, milkers?  Oh how I yearn for fresh cow's milk.  We had a Jersey once upon a time, about 27 years ago.  I still remember the taste of the fresh cow's milk, and one day I will have my own cow to milk and drink that milk...yearning....

Enjoy your time spent with us, we are as a family, friendly, kidding with each other, you will make new friends.  Enjoy AND have that most beautiful and wonderful day, to love this life as we live it.  Cindi
