Hello, we are new to beekeeping and enjoying this site a lot. Our 11 yr old son approached us a couple of months ago about keeping bees. He has been so excited. I can't remember a time he read so much without being forced to.
We are getting ready for our bees and they should be here in May. We are starting with two hives. One established and one a new start.
We are in the country on 5 acres with lots of fields in the area. I am very hopeful that we have a great area to keep bees in. I was walking around our land yesterday looking at all the "bee food" that is in bloom...funny how your prospective can change so fast.
We just got back from our state meeting and a local meeting (in the same week). We are learning a lot and making some contacts if we run into problems and need help.
Thanks to everyone who posts here. It is a big help and encouragement to those of us who are just starting out.
