I've visited this site occasionally in the past and I have found it to be fun and informative. So I thought it was time I joined the group and stop lurking.
I mostly use Anne Onimous as my ID on the web. It's a name my hubby used when we were first dating (he has a great sense of humor) almost 30 years ago.
I've been interested in (reading and learning about, not actual) beekeeping for about 2 years. Two books I loved reading are Bees in America
by Tammy Horn & Beeing
by Rosanne Daryl Thomas.
Hubby and I just bought a small farm last autumn with plans for bees, chickens and goats and gardens. I spent the winter job hunting, so haven't started adding to our animal population yet. Currently, we have 2 dogs. Titan is an 8-yr old male Great Pyrenees we've had for 7 years and Maddie is a 6-yr old female Brittany Spaniel we adopted last autumn (both were from shelters).
Chickens are arriving this summer and Bees are on my agenda for next spring!!
