So I'm a new keeper here, I've been procrastinating giving beekeeping a try for quite a few years. I finally decided to give it a try this year after talking with a fellow co-worker who had previously kept bee's for many years and only recently had to give it up due to other obligations. I've spent a good deal of time reading this forum, a couple of great blogs and Michael Bush's site.
My bee's came last Thursday two 4 frame nuc's, after getting them installed and then watching them for a bit I realized this is likely to be one of the most addicting hobbies I've picked up. I have two different hive setups one using 10 frame mediums, and the other is using the standard setup of 2 deeps and foundation. I wanted to give myself the chance to see the differences between the two before I committed myself one way or the other.
I've got a nice little blog setup which has been handy since my co-worker lives over an hour a way and he can check in the photos and let me know if he see's anything awry. I'll get a link posted once I get through my new member status.
Not much else I can think of to say except, I think I want more hives already as its been incredibly difficult to just sit and watch the hives without being able to get in them. I have to keep reminding myself they need their undisturbed time to do their work, but I'm curious as to whats going on inside.
