From second year beek:

I learned I like Carnies better than Italians. But all bees are good... (Though, my "mutt" bees are a little hot tempered).
I knew I loved honey, but having your own is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I learned I had a lot more friends when people knew I had raw, local honey.
Hopefully I'll learn what it feels like to overwinter bees.  So far so good!

Wow!  Its hard to pin point precisely (in this hobby one can learn much each season), but what I did learn was really more of an "acceptance of others methods' specifically in regards to insulating hives over winter. 

I'm not yet convinced of 'complete' insulation, but insulating three sides and the top are gonna be SOP for me from now on, at least until I change my mind again Wink

I learned that keeping bees is fun.
I learned that teaching your children about bees and having them learn with you is something that they hopefully will remember forever.
I learned that stings on the face hurt and swell
I learned that people are crazy for local honey and are not bashful about knocking on your door to ask for honey, even if they dont know you.
I learned that doing cut outs and swarm captures are alot of work and alot of fun.
I learned that I am not alone in my fascination for these insects.

Thank goodness! 
It is so nice to have such a wonderful community of folks (even if they are mainly virtual/online) with the same fascination.   Smiley
