Hi everyone...
« on: November 27, 2009, 11:20:14 AM »
Hi, my first post! Just found this forum today. I'm planning to start next Spring/Summer & so I thought I'd better start researching now!
I'll be asking a lot of real "newbee" questions through this winter....please bear with me.
I already have a question: I live in Germany (although I'm English) & would love to hear about any bee suppliers in the north of Germany - hard to find!
Looking forward to any advice/recommendations that come my way..........

Never measure the height of a mountain until you reach the top. When you look back you will see how small it really was.

glad you found us.

if you will put your location in your profile, it will help with answering questions.  many answer depend on where you are.

you'll find lots of info on equipment, etc.  there are others here getting ready to start in spring.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
