Taking the plunge this year - becoming a first year beekeeper. Long time lurker, reader, researcher, and the like - jumping in finally.
I've prepped as best as I could - local beekeeping club observation.. web research... consumed podcasts.
Just about done building the hive - bees are arriving April 3rd! I've been documenting my journey and 'lessons learned' etc at http://www.suburbanbeekeeper.com to help anyone that comes after me. I'm loving it so far!
If I can help anyone out there with questions etc, feel free to drop me a line.
