As a kid (many years ago) I helped my father keep 50+ hives of bees that were used to pollinate or 200 acres of birdsfoot trefoil that we raised for seed. The honey was almost as clear as water. I a about to get some used equipment from a friend. Another friend is a current beekeeper and we will go through the materials and see if it all needs to be burned or can be safely used. I hope to build a small room in the top floor of my garage to house a hive or two. Id do this mostly to keep the bears away. It will also make a very nice controlled environment for the bees. I love creative solutions to problems and I think this project will provide ample opportunity to solves these problems. I love the Internet and the way it allows collections of fine people with similar passions to meet and share information.
Looking forward to this experience.
