My name is Cody . Up until about a month ago, I had no thoughts about beekeeping . My wife saw a flyer for a free beekeeping class at the local library . Since then I have been reading everything that I can get on the subject , watching Youtube videos , searching Craigslist for Hives and bee related items and I Visited one of the Master Gardeners who taught the class .(she was nice enough to show off her bees ).
I am on 2.5 acres in Rochester ,Wa . Just south of Olympia. I grow Apples ,Figs, Asian Pears and Plums with a total of 60 trees . I hope to glean some info from the nice folks her before i wade into this .
