Hello from Mississippi
« on: March 14, 2013, 04:24:32 PM »
I am, hopefully, a soon to be beekeeper and plan on joining the local club, the Central MS Beekeeping Association.  I live on a few acres in Brandon, MS and plan on two hives.

Thanks for the welcome.  I didn't know we had a supply site in MS; Taylorsville isn't too far away either.
