New To Beekeeping -
« on: July 29, 2013, 12:21:28 AM »
We only have 1 hive in SE Virginia, but it seems to be going well.  Bottom 2 brood boxes are nearly full.  The cotton next to our property is blooming so I think they will be OK this winter.  They are pulling honey in all 8 frames in the third (top) brood box.  Hopefully, we will get 1 or 2 or 3 more hives next spring :) .  We just moved to 10 acres and will be getting alpacas and goats in September.

Welcome to the forum, Karstifer. You may want to see if you have a local bee club, they can be a big help also.  If you have any questions, just give a post, someone will get you an answer.  Good luck

Thanks folks - I appreciate your kind words.  Joe D, I joined two local clubs and will probably stay with the one closest to our home. Thanks again
