Hello! I'm also a new-bee from Maryland! Over the winter, I took a beekeeping class after reading about the threat to our food supply. When it came time to go into our instructor's hive, I fell 'in love'...and I want to be part of the solution! I received my package of bees on April 10th (I only have one hive). I've had a few challenges and a lot of questions so hopefully I can find some patient people here who will help me. So far the hive seems to be rocking though, despite my struggles!
