Hello from a fellow Alabamian,
You've come to the right place.  We just love this site and think you will too.  Good folks, family oriented, and lots of GOOD INFO.
We are in S. Central Alabama, just above the Alabama/Florida state line due south of you.  The Bees are really working here today.

gathering supplies... :?  Hey wasn't there a rash of theft of bee equipment in the Alabama area recently.  :buttkick:

Besides gathering wisdom, I hope you like humor. Sometimes stupid humor, but humor just the same... :roll:

Hello, gwalker....I am in Shelby County (grew up in Southside, though) and am also just beginning this hobby. Let's compare notes when we can!
It is what it is.......except when it isn't.

Hello Imehaffey,
I am in McCalla just off the I-459 /I-59 junction. I am just getting started this spring so I'll be glad to pass on what I learn from beginners experience & the forums.
Welcome
