Brand new to beekeeping...
« on: February 12, 2012, 11:25:22 AM »
My fiancĂ© and I have decided to start a couple hives.  We have a small farm in NE CT and like the idea of having bees and hopefully getting our own honey.  We are 3/4 of the way through the local bee club's class on beekeeping and have ordered most of our supplies.  We ordered our packages from the club's president and are looking forward, with much anticipation, to our first year.  Our packages arrive sometime after May 6th.
