I am a bee keeper wannabe. I don't have any bees at all. I am here to learn, to read about successes, and failures, so that when I do finally get brave and get my hive going, I will have some wisdom to guide me. I have read enough to know that honeybees are in trouble, and I don't want my ignorance to add to their woes. Lots of honeybees visit my yard, I think they are wild bees living in the woods, but they do fly quite a long way to forage, so maybe not. I garden without pesticides or herbicides, and try to save plants that I know the bees like, even if I don't like it. And I am planting bee friendly items like buckwheat, flowers etc. So, I am here to learn, and will probably ask the dumbest questions imaginable! So, please forgive me, but some things you just can't learn from a book. I want to be a beekeeper, so I am here to hang out with beekeepers.
