    Hello Beekeepers. Not sure bees are legal in my city but honey sure makes some great mead!

    Thanks.

    The NEKBA.org meets next month - June 11- just south of my sub division even on the same street. Think I will stop by. Hope that bodes well for Olathe being bee friendly.

    Hey Backyardcovey:
    Glad you found us, lots of great folks here, friendly as all get out, (and some even know a thing or two about bees ;) )

    Hey Rat, you don't mean Ottawa, Canada do you?

    Welcome backyardcovey. I sent you a reply. Glad to hear you know about our local bee club. Double check the next meeting date. It's July 11, not June 11. Sorry that you just missed the big annual education day, aka Funday.
    Does the subdivision you live in have rules about keeping bees? Do you have privacy fencing?

    Replied. I have a 6' privacy fence. Read the HOA rules and did not see that bees were forbidden.

    Reading beekeeping for dummies at this point plus have two of free kindle books from the 1800s on my phone.

    Have conturnix quail eggs in a pair of incubators for this summers project. Bees in the spring after I know more.
