Rookie BEEK in San Antonio
« on: April 22, 2013, 02:08:56 PM »
Hi Everybody! I should have made my introduction a little while ago, but better late than never.

After studying and thinking about it for two years, I took the plunge and started a top bar hive one week ago with a package from Beeweaver.  Looking forward to the journey.

Welcome to the forum, Duryeafarms.  You should enjoy the ride.  Keep a check on the comb, that it is being run straight.  If there is a local bee club, you may want to join.  In our local club, I thing I am the ony one with a TBH.  Good luck to you and your bees.

Check on both. I've been a member of the local club for 6 months. Awesome group, a couple of top bar folks. I'm definitely keeping an eye on comb linearity :-)
Thanks

Welcome Jon.

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Welcome to the forum and beekeeping, Jon. 

It sounds like you've done a lot of studying, but your education has only begun!  ;)

Best wishes to you and the bees,
