Hi all from Eastern Ohio
« on: June 22, 2005, 10:23:31 AM »
Hi all,
We are in eastern Ohio, Mahoning County. We bought a place in the woods about 2 years ago and it has grown into about more then I can handle  . We started keeping Bees last year to pollinate our 2 acres of melons and squash. We are still learning. We have some 40 chickens, and this year we went from 2 hives of Buckfest to 12 hives. We have added 10 hives of NWC to our bee yard. We love it !!!! I have been reading all of the posts for some time now and wanted to start getting in on some of the topics. We just bought a Walter Kelly 33 frame extractor from a friend down south and we are planning out first harvest the weekend after the 4th of July. We are making it a picnic and harvest event for the whole family….LOL We have about 8 full Capped honey supers to get emptied. My wife “Lorah” and children “Rochelle 14, Benjamin 13, Amy 9” are all helping to make this happen. The kids and I keep a journal to track what we are doing and so we can look back at what we have done.

I just wanted to say to Michael, Beth, Robo, Sherryl, Ryan and all the rest Thank-you so much for all the Great info!!!!! Us newbee’s can use all the help we can get.

Pass it on to the kids

That is a great idea making it a family affair and getting everyone involved. I think I will reccomend that to my wife when we uncap honey.  Have a family cookout.

Hey Daddy-T:

Sorry for the SLOW welcome from the site Admin. guy - It is inexcusable to not be around to welcome new folks aboard, but our membership (headed by a wonderful group of Moderators) is always here to make you first posts as importantly attended to as they should.

It is a busy time here at Beemaster Central (just a silly name for my tiny 100x50 chunk of sub-urban realty - I'm either working steady, fixing up the yard, RVing or taking care of family members who are the real priority in my life.

I know you will have a great time here - the Karma of this forum is very friendly and positive, and although THAT occurs fairly easy (especially knowing the MAIN TOPIC of our gathering) we still have a great Mod group that does a fantastic job of being available to always help or direct members to where they can always find help when needed, or just be there to Chat when general conversation is all that is needed.

So again, welcome and enjoy the Bee Forums :)
