Hello everyone. I started Beekeeping in May of 2011, so I am very new although I learned a tremendous amount already. I currently have 12 hives and I have two great mentors to help teach me all the different things I need to do and when to do them. They have proven invaluable. Currently reading The Hive and the Honey Bee and I am keeping a Bee journal. Started with 2 hives and from there I was hooked and then another 10 became available to me so I am in it now.
