I've been keeping bees since this summer and they have essentially taken over my life.
My wife, a most patient woman, puts up with my addiction daily and even encourages me at times! I presently have one Langstroth hive and I'm in the process of building 15-20 top bar hives for Spring 2009.
I've seen Beemaster.com now and then but never got around to joining. I am excited to learn from the collective knowledge of you all!
In addition to my own apiary plans, I have been working tirelessly on a bee directory website that, with the help of the bee community, I hope becomes the largest directory of bee information/news on the internet. Thanks for the contributions of beekeepers throughout the world we now have over 260 links, articles and news pieces and the content is growing rapidly. I think you'll be able to see the link to the site in my signature.http://www.beethinking.com
