How long have you been keeping bees?

My bees are coming in the spring!
I am in my first year of keeping bees.
I am in my second year of keeping bees.
I have had bees for 3 years or more.
I have had bees so long I have lost count.
I have dreams, but no firm plans to get bees.

And she will get it back bud as long as she keeps up her end of the bargain!  :-D


Just officially got the time off of work in April to attend the gathering, as long as the date doesn't change (Beemaster gave me an approximate date to go by) :stayontopic: Sorry for hijacking thread!!

What "gathering" are you all talking about?  or is it a private party?     :pop:

We have a gathering at Bud's house every April. This will be the fourth annual gathering coming this April. Everyone is invited. We work hives, do cut outs, catch swarms, go fishing and have a BBQ. Its a whole lot of fun! Come on down this April!

JP - Thanks for the info and the invite.  It's a bit far for me but...thanks to the link from Jim 134 I was able to see Scott collect a couple of swarms and you and Ziffa do a cutout.  Great videos!   :)
