Greetings to everyone! I'm coming to you today live from the Copperhead Road Compound (CRC) somewhere North of the Perimeter around lovely Atlanta, GA. I'm a relative newcomer to the site, as well as to beekeeping (having started with two hives in 1999).

Hi John

You have been keeping bees for a while now. Have you been successful???

I live in Northern California and have gone through 4 seasons now with the bees. I have learned so so much from being on this forum.
Good luck and welcome.

Annette, this is strictly a hobby for me. I don't sell anything. Everyone is happy to get honey for Christmas I think grin

So, yes, I've been successful. The bees seem to do ok in spite of what I might do.

I'f you are keeping the bees alive, then you are successful.  That is what I have them for also. A hobby, but of course over the years, it has taken on a life of its own. In learning how important they are to our survival and such, I feel almost a duty to keep them going now.

But it has to be fun, enjoyable for me to continue. So far, so good.  I have taken up a new project this year that is keeping me excited. I am teaching beekeeping to the 4H club of Placerville. 11 kids ages 10-17.  We have ordered the equipment and will start 2 beehives together.

I have another post going on here about the bees in the dresser. If they survive, they will be one of the hives for the club.

Take Care
Annette
