My name is Rick, and I'm six days away from my fifty-second birthday . . . I'll be back in a bit after the depression fades from saying that.
Okay, I'm back! My long-suffering wonderful wife of thirty-three years (come one month from tomorrow) has indulged me in jumping both feed forward into beekeeping. I've ordered two complete hives and two packages of bees plus assorted accessories. Hives and accessories should ship soon, bees will ship the end of April -- a late start, but I was late in deciding to go forward with this.
Work keeps me pretty busy, and this seemed a hobby I can fit around my schedule. Mostly will only be able to work the bees on the weekend, but looking forward to to entering the hobby.
I've got about 764 questi-- no, make that 765 questions (just thought of another) and I'll be pestering you folks with those in the coming weeks, though searching through the web site has already knocked it down from the original 1,942 questions.
In any case, glad to be here!
PS: I made up the number of questions, but it's likely a lot. :)
