Dear fellow beekeepers
My name is Rich and I live in the "Lakes Region" of south-central New Hampshire. This past Spring my friend Greg offered to get me started with beekeeping. I have a 40 acre farm with a fruit tree orchard, so beekeeping seemed like a natural fit. I started with 2 packages of Italian bees, feed them, and wathched them flourish. At the very begining I was a mere spectator... until the first swarm settled on an apple tree... then, the second swarm (which was captured). My rude awakening was that I was clueless as to what I should be doing, when, and how.
So far, I am pretty much self taught and find forums of experienced beekeepers, like this, are a big BIG help.
Thanks for being here...!
