Hi all. I suppose I should write a simple hello!

I've been considering bee keeping for years. I have finally decided to really jump in and have been having a great time building my hives. I personally have _never_ seen a swarm in person. So, rather then take my chances tryign to find one I purchased package bees.  We should be getting this 2nd week of April. Most people think I am crazy.  But, we have a garden and alot of Dwarf Fruit tree's along with Cane Berries. so,  I originally started with the ida of just having bee's to polinate.  As I read more I got more and more intrigued about the whole process and collecting honey. 

I am using the hTBH as described in the Barefoot Beekeepers Book.

Currently Fermenting:

Cherry Melomel - 1Gal
Pear Melomel - 1Gal
White Pyment - 1Gal
Root Beer Mead - 1Gal
Mead Cyser - 5Gal

Recently Finished:
Sack Mead - 1Gal, Very Good!
Braggot - 1Gal, Very popular!
Mead Cyser - 1Gal, Wifes Fav!
JAO - 1Gal, Nice, A bit too sweet.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

Ryan, welcome to our forum.  You have no idea the wonderful experiences you are going to have keeping bees.  THis will be a place where you can learn, lean on us for advice, ask all questions you require, they are all important. This will also be a place where you can make new friends, tell those stories, tales and experiences, and basically hang out.  Have a most wonderful and awesome day, life, great health.  Cindi

There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service
