New from Alabama
« on: January 28, 2014, 12:27:38 PM »
Hi, new to forum and to beekeeping. Starting this year with two Langstroth hives. Getting ready with advice from local supplier/Beekeepers. Bees arrive 3/31. Started building pre made deeps, ready to paint. Getting a late start since we just moved out of Mobile to our own land.

Congratulations on settling on your Tara.  That is 'The Land' in gaelic.  Good friend of mine in the military would announce every summer he was going on vacation to LA!  Welcome.

Welcome to the forum.  :cheer: Are you part of a local club? Some clubs have free mentoring programs and extraction equipment you can borrow or a member will let you extract with them.  - Mike

Thanks for welcoming, not a club member yet, I've met and talked with a retail bee supplier and Master Beek inMobile. They are great with info and I'm purchasing from the store.

Welcome to the forum, Clem.  Which way outside Mobile, I go through ever now and again, 98 to 65, and 10 and on to Milton Fla.  Good luck to you

Hi Joe, we are a few miles north of Semmes (off 98), close to Georgetown.
