Newbee from Washington
« on: April 23, 2012, 12:35:36 PM »
Hi all. My name is Arthur, I just started my first hive this year (an interesting experience, to be sure).

When looking into beekeeping, I found that I really like Warre's ideas on beekeeping, so I went with a Warre' hive.

I will be asking many questions over the season, so please bear with me.

can you put your location in your profile?  there are a number of PNW beekeepers on here and we can give you location specific answers.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
