I'm new to this group, I've joined a few online groups and am excited to be having my midlife crisis that consists of bees, gardens and chickens, so much for that little red corvette hu? I have gardened for about 5 yrs refusing to water anything we aren't eating. If the city would "let" me, I'd have my front yard be a vegetable garden too, as it is, it's now a bee food garden! Take that ya code enforcer! :evil: :police: I'm not really a rebel, just in a silly mood. I decided that as much as I love my garden, one of the best thing about it was the bees. So last December I got to looking into what it would take to have my own hive. I was afraid that it would be a huge production, and what do you know, it is! And I love every second of it! (well, almost every second, the parts where I'm in a suit hot as the surface of the sun not so much....)
I also decided that I needed chickens and I'm super excited to be going to get my new (to me anyway) coop tomorrow along with 4 cute little chicks! My friends think I've lost my mind and you know? that's OK! I've been keeping a blog instead of a journal in regard to my inspections and reflections I hope it's OK if I post the addy here, it's not for money, but if you're an old time beek then perhaps my brand new baby antics will amuse you and remind you about when you were a newbee too. I have already found some answers to questions online here in the forums. THANK YOU! I'm a knowledge sponge these days with bees and chickens. I'd love a pen pal if you wanna chat, feel free to hit me up via my blog or Facebook. Thanks for reading.
