I am a hobbyist with five active hives. This is my nineteenth year of beekeeping and I've have had up to twelve hives in the past. However, over the last couple of years, bears almost knocked me into some other hobby, like stamp collecting or something. This year, so far so good. A good flow has begun with a nice balance of sunny days and occasional rain producing a fine crop of clover. The nights though have been quite cool. I look forward to participating in this informative forum.
