Noob from AZ
« on: December 21, 2010, 12:25:08 AM »
Just thought that I would try this bee thing to help out my garden. Had a neighbor a long time ago who had bees and used to get honey.

I don't know what I am doing, but after a lot of reading and youtube videos, I'm building a ktbh and will buy some bees if it looks at all livable. I mainly want the bees for pollination for now (spring)...maybe get into more if all goes well.

learn all you can and then jump in.  :-)

when you come back, can you go into your profile and put your location.  otherwise, you  will not get the info you need for your area. 

welcome to beekeeping....soon.
.....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.....
