Just dropping a line to introduce myself. My name is Jim, and I live in Independence, KY., which is just south across the river from Cincinnati. Have always enjoyed honey and the benefits it provides. On the farm growing up, there was a large tree that had a hive in it for years. I wanted to start a hive this year, but I gained that interest a little too late in the season. I plan on building a TBH, and getting everything sorted out in preparation for next season.
