Another hello from Georgia
« on: December 12, 2012, 01:29:09 PM »
I am a first year beekeeper from Georgia, the southern end of the state.  I have been studying beekeeping for over a year and purchased five packages this past spring.  I have learned a lot from them this year.  I am looking to expand in the coming years and see where this hobby will take me.  I am always looking for sources of information such as this site.

Welcome to the forum, Michael.  Starting with five hives you probably have picked up on a lot.  I started beek late last fall, strange time, I got three established hives from an estate.  This spring I caught six swarms, most from those three hives.  Good luck to you and your bees.
