Newly joined, I'm just south of the Twin Cities. 4 colonies in New Market/Elko and 1 colony a few miles down the road in New Prague.
Started this, my second year, with eight colonies from pkgs (two colonies last year, neither made it through winter).... I've had to merge a couple, due to poor queen.
So just getting to the point of harvesting some honey this year.
This looks like a good forum. Thanks for putting it together.
