Congratulations, I wish you continued success in the expansion of your bee yard. How many hives do you want to end up with? I started the year with 2, lost one and I am up to 6. My goal is 10 or 12 by the end of the year and maybe 20 by next year. Don't really have a plan but retirement is maybe 10 years away and building it up now so that I will have something to keep me busy later on and maybe provide a little extra spending money.
