    Hello!

    This is my first time in this space. I've always had an interest in bees, and (full disclosure) I'm writing a blog post about the beekeeping community. I'm testing out this forum to see if I should include it in my list of resources for beginner beekeepers :)

    So, I have a question for you (beekeeper or just aspiring beekeeper): What's your favorite aspect of beekeeping? What makes you continue to care for (and love) your buzzing creatures?

    ​Thanks to all, and happy beekeeping!

    I just love to see them in my gardens and ponds. I don't make money, I spend it. We have drought a lot, so I have only harvested honey 2 years out of 4. When my hives increase or I get too many swarms I help newer beekeepers get started by selling off a non-fancy hive here and there of mutt bees. I do it for the love of the bees
